Overview

How it Works
The Ambassador Program offers a stipend to GU Alumni that complete approved activities identified on the Ambassador Plan. The GU coordinator and the Ambassador will establish a plan and indicate the activities to be completed. The Ambassador can assist with tours, facilitate discussion groups, and help students see that going to college can be a reality, etc. After the Ambassador completes the plan set forth by the GU coordinator and Ambassador, the GU school can move forward with a stipend payment.
