Student Scholar Ambassadors

» Student Scholar Ambassadors

Student Scholar Ambassadors are a select group of accomplished students who have participated in academic research, creative activity, and/or applied to or received a prestigious fellowship/scholarship. They serve as liaisons for the Center for Undergraduate Excellence at various events, highlighting all our office has to offer faculty and students. 

CUE’s Student Scholar Ambassadors are available for one-on-one peer advising to help students get started and navigate their research and creative plan, find various scholarly opportunities, and answer any questions.
