Transfer Ambassadors

UC’s Transfer Ambassadors are representatives of the University of Cincinnati, Clifton Campus. Serving as the "face" of the University of Cincinnati through the lens of a transfer student, Transfer Ambassadors are responsible for fostering a positive and welcoming environment at the university for all students and guests - in particular, those in transition. Additionally they will serve as their college's liaison and be involved in the university's transfer initiatives.

New for the 2021-2022 year, the program is now a scholarship award. One student will be selected from each college, and represent their college. Students selected for this scholarship can be awarded up to $1,500 for the school year (divided over enrolled semesters).

See details and link to our application form below. Application deadline is Friday, April 16.
