Gap Year Ambassador Fellowship

Our Gap Year Ambassador Fellows are natural storytellers that love recounting their experiences and sharing their favorite stories.

Scholarship Award: up to $2,000 each season  
(multiple scholarships may be awarded)

Maybe you are an aspiring photographer or videographer, have the gift of the pen, love speaking in front of a crowd, or have a knack for engaging with people on social media platforms. Let us know what you can bring to the table to spread the word about our gap year programs to be in the running for the Ambassador Fellowship. 
The Fellowship includes mentorship from the marketing professionals at Pacific Discovery, and will be a great asset to your resume.
