Alumni Ambassador Program

An alumni program for CIEE college study abroad alumni

The CIEE Alumni Ambassador program is a nine-month leadership development program that identifies and develops CIEE Alumni to be exceptional ambassadors of study abroad. Through their own words, images, and enthusiasm, CIEE Alumni Ambassadors play an important role in promoting CIEE Study Abroad programs and provide critical student outreach in support of CIEE’s nonprofit mission. Each Ambassador will form part of an extraordinary initiative aimed at promoting the value of study abroad and CIEE's approach to global education, thereby preparing fellow students to be intentional, innovative, and reflective learners.

We are seeking committed, outgoing, and socially connected CIEE alumni to join our program for the academic year. Students from all CIEE Study Centers are encouraged to apply, and up to two Ambassadors will be selected from each of CIEE’s member institutions. Candidates will be selected based on their submission to CIEE Alumni Relations and feedback from CIEE Study Center staff. Apply Now!

Once your application is received, a member of the alumni department will contact you for further instruction/screening. CIEE will do their best to accommodate all alumni interested in participating in the program.
