Off-Campus Ambassadors & Student Assistants


ACM offers students opportunities to gain significant, hands-on work experience connected with their study away by serving as Student Assistants and Off-Campus Study Ambassadors. Both of these paid positions provide insights into higher education, international education, and the growing field of off-campus study.

Student Assistants

Earn a stipend while working a total of 30-35 hours during the term when you are participating on an ACM off-campus study program. Depending on the position and program site, student assistants’ responsibilities may be in communications, academic, or administrative areas. Duties range from blogging and taking photos to organizing program-related activities to working with library and other academic materials for the program. Selection for the positions is through a competitive application process.

Visit the Student Assistants webpage for more information about available positions and application instructions.

Off-Campus Study Ambassadors

After you return from participating in an ACM study away program, put your experience and enthusiasm for study away to work as an Off-Campus Study Ambassador on your campus.

Ambassadors collaborate with ACM consortial staff to develop and implement a campus outreach strategy and work throughout the school year to promote ACM off-campus programs to students, faculty, and staff at their home colleges.

Students selected as Off-Campus Study Ambassadors are paid $10 per hour throughout the academic year (with a maximum of 30 hours/$300 for the year), mainly during September-November and January-February. The schedule of a liberal arts college can be demanding, so this position is designed to be very flexible.

Applications for ambassador positions at ACM colleges in 2018-19 will be accepted in spring 2018. For more information, contact
