Nominate a DAAD Young Ambassador—Applications Due June 10

DAAD Newsletter, April 15th

The 2011/12 academic year isn't far down the road. Looking for an innovative way to inform and advise new student groups about opportunities for study in Germany? This is a great program for helping returning study abroad students put their newly found knowledge and experience to good use. Nominate a DAAD Young Ambassador on your campus!

DAAD is excited to announce the latest call for applications for its Young Ambassadors Program. DAAD Young Ambassadors are undergraduate students from North America who have recently studied or conducted research in Germany and are interested in promoting study in Germany at their home institutions. DAAD has 20 spots available for students from all over the US and Canada to help demonstrate to their peers what makes Germany such a unique and attractive destination for study abroad.

DAAD Young Ambassadors are responsible for organizing at least one event per semester on their campuses to promote study in Germany. Additionally, they will collaborate with their universities' study abroad offices and other German institutions in their areas to inform their fellow students on educational and research opportunities in Germany. There are short profiles of the Young Ambassadors on the DAAD website, and they are available for email inquiries about their respective German host universities, study abroad programs or about life as a student in Germany as general.


Applications must be received by June 10, 2011.

Although students may apply directly to DAAD to become a Young Ambassador, special preference will be given to candidates nominated by their university's study abroad office. (Only one student should be nominated per college or university.)

Complete program information, including application and nomination forms, is available at
