Apply for the Science Ambassador Program
Applications are open for incoming transfer students!
What is the Science Ambassador Program?
The Science Ambassadors program is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to represent UC Riverside’s College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences to internal and external constituents. The Science Ambassadors are the face of the program and assist the college as a host during official functions, make presentations where required, and act as a student liaison with the various communities that CNAS serves both on and off campus, with a particular emphasis on recruiting events and activities.
Within the program, Science Ambassadors also have the opportunity to participate in outreach projects with local Riverside elementary, middle, and high schools. These Science Ambassador projects — BROTHERS, Delta Sify, Little Einsteins, SISTERS, and SMASH — offer unique opportunities for Science Ambassadors to share their passion for the sciences with students at our local schools.
Science Ambassadors are well-versed with their majors and UCR and can communicate their knowledge and experience to prospective students and their families. They are highly involved in activities outside of the classroom, including undergraduate research, student life, athletics, etc. Each Science Ambassador has a distinct voice and a unique story which all contribute to the diversity of the College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences at UC Riverside.
CNAS Science Ambassadors adhere to the highest standards of student conduct and academic integrity.
