Student Ambassador Program (SAP) is an Asia-Pacific based short-term internship program, which offers opportunities to students to serve as ambassadors to join APA faculty-led study abroad programs (FLP), so they can connect and interact with international student peers from other countries, including U.S. and Asia-Pacific countries. During the short-term internship program, ambassadors will be also playing an important role to work with APA program team to coordinate the program on-site daily operations and to help international students immerse in local culture. The goal of SAP is building a community or platform where students from different countries can learn other, gain a new perspective, and improve their intercultural communication skills.
The typical time commitment for a Student Ambassador is 3 to 5 days of part-time preparation before the program’s start date, and 5 to 20 days of actual program involvement during the on-the-ground program. After the program is completed, Student Ambassadors will also spend 1 day to finish the program summary. Every Student Ambassador candidate is required to participate in the SAP training sessions before being confirmed as an APA Student Ambassador.
There is no cost for students to join the Student Ambassador Program. APA will cover many of the expenses related to the program, with the exception of expenses above and beyond the program budget, personal expenses and special circumstances, which will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
