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.

The Transfer Ambassador program became a scholarship award in 2021. One to two students will be selected from each college to be the voice of transfer students. Students selected for this scholarship can be awarded up to $1,500 for the school year (divided over enrolled semesters).

Please check Scholarship Universe for more details. Applications typically become available in late Spring.
