Applications Now Being Accepted for CRL Ambassadors

The Center for Research and Learning is seeking applicants to fill five to six openings in our CRL Ambassadors Program. CRL ambassadors assist the Center with presentations to students across the campus, highlighting the value of undergraduate research. Ambassadors also assist with the many events run by the CRL and its parent organization the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. Finally, ambassadors serve as informal advisors to the CRL, helping us improve our programs and as role models to our students.

Qualifications: Applicants must be full-time undergraduate students at IUPUI who have reached at least sophomore status and participated in at least one CRL sponsored program. Students must be willing to assist with two or more CRL activities a semester and attend scheduled meetings (usually once a semester.)

Rewards: Ambassadors are recognized at CRL and OVCR events where they participate and will receive a certificate of participation upon completion of their service.

Application: When applying, please be prepared to include a brief (200-300 words) essay answering the following question: A first-year student in your school asks you; "Why would it be worthwhile to participate in a CRL sponsored program"?
