Ambassadors Conference

In June 2015, we will offer a new opportunity to students who have participated in a course affiliated with the Philanthropy Lab in the 2014-2015 academic year. Each of our university partners will have the opportunity to send two student Ambassadors to a two-day conference in Chicago.

What will Ambassadors do?
Chosen ambassadors will be able to:

How will Ambassadors be chosen?
Since Ambassadors are representing their classes, it will be up to professors to decide how students will choose their representatives from among those who are interested. Students will also choose which one of their grantees they would like their Ambassadors to pitch at the conference.

If chosen, what would I be committing to?

  1. Attend a weekend conference June 19-21, 2015, in Chicago. [If chosen, your travel expenses will be included.] Tentative general agenda:
    • June 19: Arrive in Chicago in the afternoon. Shuttle to hotel. 7pm opening dinner event.
    • June 20: Conference 8:30am-5:00pm. Evening free time.
    • June 21: Conference 8:30am-1:30pm. Afternoon travel home.
  2. Be prepared to present and advocate for one of your class’s grantees to receive further funding.
  3. Submit information on your grantee by June 5th. You may use information prepared for your current class and supplement it if you wish. Review info on all grantees the week prior to the conference to prepare for presentation/debates.
  4. Provide a photo and possibly other info (after being chosen) in order to be featured as a highlighted student on our website (will also be cross-posted to FB and LinkedIn pages).
  5. Provide a meaningful post to LinkedIn over the course of the year (at scheduled intervals between September 2015 and August 2016). This will reflect on some aspect of giving, a meaningful discussion/question you recall addressing in class, or a related video/article.
