This program is part of the initiative “Study in Spain“ developed by the Trade Commission – Embassy of Spain in Miami, Florida. The goal of the program is to promote Spain as an educational destination for students in the U.S.
Student Ambassadors should have studied or have good knowledge about Spain and Spanish institutions to promote it via activities on campus or online (social media networks, blogs, etc.)
Who can become a Student Ambassador?
All students attending University or College in US are welcome to participate in the program1. It is necessary to have a good knowledge of Spain or have previously studied in Spain, and be committed to the program during Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters.
What should I do as Student Ambassador?
Promoting “Study in Spain” implies planning on campus and online activities. You are free to come up with original ideas and do any activity which encourages other students to study in Spain.
The Program Coordinator will guide you along your journey as Student Ambassador. Each month, the Program Coordinator will propose a topic – related with studying in Spain or the country itself – and Student Ambassadors should plan an activity based on it. This is not mandatory but highly recommended.
All your activities should be shared on the SiS-Student Ambassador FB page, as well as any content that could be of interest to the community. Also, the Student Ambassador can create a specific profile for the purpose of this activity on the different social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) or use his/her own profile.
You will receive promotional material to distribute it freely in your campus. You could participate in orientation sessions, study abroad fairs or any other initiative that is related with Spain. More materials, allowance and expenses compensation are available upon request to the Program Coordinator.
What will I get for participating?
The program will help you to improve your skills and boost your resume, of course, but we have prepared some extra benefits for you:
Chance to win a one-week trip to Spain for the best Student Ambassador of the year
Chance to win other prices during the year
Chance to participate in the Student Ambassador award ceremony at NAFSA 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
