What is a student Ambassador?

A Student Ambassador for the International Association for Geoscience and Diversity (IAGD) will serve as a connection between the Ambassador’s university and the IAGD. The purpose of this connection is to share information and resources provided by the IAGD with individual universities, while helping to create an inclusive community of diverse ability levels within the larger geoscience community. The Ambassador will also assist in developing the IAGD Student Community by actively sharing information about educational opportunities such as scholarships and fellowships, posting information from the IAGD on their social media platforms, and maintaining an online presence in the Student Community Forums on the IAGD website.
