ISSS International Ambassador Program


About the Program

International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) International Ambassador Program matches students, familiar with campus and Salt Lake City, to incoming international students. Ambassadors help new international students adjust to life at the U and U.S. by assisting students during their transition to the University of Utah and Salt Lake Valley. The Ambassador is awarded a $1,000 scholarship towards tuition during each semester in which they participate in the Program.


Ambassador Mission

The Ambassador Program works to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for new international students through peer support, guidance, resources and advice during new students’ arrival and first year at the University of Utah. Ambassadors are community builders who look to create memories, plan events, and make the international student experience the best it can be. Ambassadors are experienced students from a variety of backgrounds. They serve as role models to new international students through individual interactions during Orientation, International Night, and many other events and opportunities.
