Student Ambassador Program

the bridge between cultures

Student Ambassador Program (SAP) is an Asia-Pacific based short-term internship program that offers opportunities for students to serve as Ambassadors and join APA’s faculty-led study abroad programs (FLPs) so they can interact with their peers from other countries, including the US and Asia-Pacific countries/regions. During the short-term internship program, the Ambassadors play an important role in working with the APA program team to coordinate the program’s on-site daily operations and help the international students become immersed in the local culture. The goal of the SAP is to build a community in which students from different countries can learn from each other, gain new perspectives, and improve their intercultural communication skills.

Program Details

  • – Program Preparation: Student Ambassadors will work with the APA program team for a complete understanding of the assigned FLP program information and for preparing the program documents.
  • On-the-Ground: Student Ambassadors will manage the on-site daily operations for the assigned program including student head counts and the program schedule. They will work closely with the APA program team, the relevant external partners, their program faculty leader, and the international student participants to ensure that the program’s activities are carried out smoothly and as planned.
  • – Program Summary: Student Ambassadors will work with the APA program team to complete the FLP Program Feedback Report, SAP Program Feedback, and the assigned Program Financial Report.


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 involvement during the on-the-ground program. After the program is completed, the Student Ambassadors will also spend one day completing 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 and personal expenses; expenses for special circumstances, will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
