Program Ambassador Scholarship Program from UNC Business Essentials

UNC Business Essentials is an online business certificate program offered through UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. The program is designed specifically for non-business students and working professionals to develop valuable business knowledge and experience and accelerate their careers.

UNC Business Essentials has introduced a Program Ambassador scholarship program which awards recipients a full scholarship for the UNC Business Essentials program, a $2,500 value. In addition, Program Ambassadors will represent UNC Business Essentials on campus, building program awareness through campus events and via social media throughout the academic year.

Role of Program Ambassadors

The role of the Program Ambassadors is defined broadly in an effort to allow ambassadors to creatively fulfill their roles in the manner that works best for them. Program Ambassadors are required to:

  • Use social media outlets to generate continuous interest and awareness about the UNC Business Essentials program
  • Increase undergraduate awareness through campus activities such as hanging UNC Business Essentials posters around campus, passing out program information and speaking to student groups about the program
  • Submit blog posts about the program as requested
  • Complete the UNC Business Essentials online program courses and obtain the business certificate prior to the start of the academic year
  • Provide insight to UNC Business Essentials team on areas for improvement

Program Ambassador Application Process

We are always interested in finding new Program Ambassadors for UNC Business Essentials. To apply for the scholarship, please email a resume, a one-page essay (250 words or less) describing how you would use social media and campus activities to promote UNC Business Essentials, why you want to be a Program Ambassador, your contact information and the name of your school - include your major, current GPA and anticipated graduation date.
