Social Media Ambassador

Calling all #TerpsAbroad! Consider being an EA Social Media Ambassador!

As a Social Media Ambassador, you will provide the Education Abroad office with content that will be shared on our social media accounts. Your expertise is an invaluable resource that makes you a strong representative of what it’s like to participate on your program from the student perspective. You are best able to speak about and showcase living in your host country, how to navigate language/culture, and what extracurricular activities to pursue, among many, many other topics.

We have several spots open so all students who are studying abroad during the Summer 2018, Fall 2018, and Fall-Spring 2018 terms are encouraged to apply. To apply, please complete the sign-up form. All content should be emailed to

The goal of this Ambassadorship is to create a reliable source for fun and relevant content that will help increase EA engagement with students through captivating social media posts and campaigns. The program also serves as a way to reframe your experience and develop some professional skills about articulating or showcasing your time abroad in a meaningful way. We hope you see this as a unique and worthwhile opportunity!
In addition to professional development, ONE ambassador with the most points at the end of the Fall 2018 semester will also receive a Grand Prize – A GoPro camera. We will also select "Staff Pick" winners, based on their level of engagement, who will receive other prizes (to be announced).
