What is the Global Ambassador Mentorship Program?
The Global Ambassador Mentorship Program is designed to help new first-year and transfer international undergraduate students successfully adjust to life at UC Davis. We match new international students with current students based on similar academic and social interests to connect them with a community of support and friends.
Participants share their culture and values with each other and build relationships. Through cultural exchange and participation in social events that the Global Ambassador Mentors host, new students develop close connections with new friends and feel at home in their new community.
Global Ambassador Mentor Fellows represent the diverse student community on campus—both domestic and international, from different academic years and fields of study, and with varied life experiences.
How to Apply
- Applications to become a mentee are closed for the 2022-23 academic year. Applications for incoming first-year and transfer international undergraduate students for the 2023-24 academic year will open in June 2023.
- Applications to become a Mentor Fellow for the 2023-24 cohort are now closed. Check back in January 2024 to apply for the 2024-25 cohort.
