DEADLINE: Graduate Phillips Ambassador Scholarship
February 19, 2016
- The Graduate Ambassador will receive a stipend of $6,500 to support summer travel and research in Asia.
- The Graduate Ambassador is expected to assist the program academic director in leading the weekend retreats for the undergraduate Ambassadors (two to three days in the spring prior to departure to Asia, and two to three days in the fall upon return).
- The Graduate Ambassador is expected to participate actively in the online discussion forum, engaging with and responding to the comments posted by the undergraduate Ambassadors.
- During the summer, the Graduate Ambassador is expected to meet and stay in contact with, as much as practical, undergraduate Ambassadors in the country or sub-region where s/he is conducting summer research. (Doing so helps to create a direct human link to the program in addition to the connection provided by the online discussion forum.)
- A cover letter (one to two pages) explaining why s/he will be able to make a positive contribution to the educational experience of the undergraduate Phillips Ambassadors.
- A brief (two page) research proposal, outlining the applicant’s plans for summer research as related to his or her thesis work.

- Letter of recommendation from thesis adviser.
