UMD: A Globally Connected University

Social Media Ambassador

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

As a Social Media Ambassador, you will provide Education Abroad with content that will be shared on our social media accounts and promotional materials. 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.

All students who are studying abroad during the Winter, Spring, Spring break 2019 terms are encouraged to apply. To apply and view the guidelines, please complete the sign-up form. You will submit content to your own Google Drive folder that will be created for you when you sign up. 
 

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 Spring 2019 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).
