Becoming an Ambassador

How to Apply for a General Student Ambassador Position

The application for General Student Ambassador Members is sent out each spring (mid- to late-March) to all PharmD and Pharm-Tox students.  The application consists of a few short essay questions and an area where you can select the events in you would like to participate.  The application is typically due within two weeks of distribution, and acceptance decisions are sent out within a week of review.  New ambassadors are selected each year.
