PCC Student Ambassador Leadership Program

What is the PCC Student Ambassador Leadership Program?
An innovative leadership program designed to meet our College’s need for the active participation of informed and dedicated student leaders. Ambassadors serve the College, not students.

The features of the program include:

  • Exclusively selected representatives of the student population to be student leaders who perform such duties as conducting campus tours for visitors, serving as host/hostesses for official college/foundation events, and assisting with recruitment.
  • Ambassadors receive a scholarship in the amount of full-time, in-state tuition and fees and will be provided with collegiate attire to distinguish themselves as official college representatives.
  • The selection process begins with the submission of the online application to be completed by the student. Finalists will be determined through an interview process and all applicants will be notified of the results.
  • An extensive three-day leadership training and development component is required in August as well as a leadership development day to be determined during the academic year.

Who should apply?

Students who have high academic achievement (3.2 unweighted GPA or better at PCC, in high school, or other colleges attended), community service participation, leadership experience, a professional appearance and are motivated self-starters are encouraged to apply. In addition, the nominee will be screened for strong oral and written communication skills (public speaking), knowledge of the college and community, ability to make a positive impression, scheduling flexibility, access to transportation, and high level of commitment to PCC.

Ambassadors must maintain full-time student status and complete a minimum of 3-5 hours of required leadership development activities per week. Ambassador activities must be considered first priority in light of other work commitments – no exceptions will be made.

IMPORTANT: Applicants must have already applied for admission to Pitt Community College and received their acceptance notice including their student user ID and password information. These credentials are REQUIRED to access the online scholarship application. There is no cost to apply for admission to Pitt Community College. It is important for students to allow for the admissions process to take place in time to complete the Ambassador Leadership Program Application. Not allowing enough time for the admissions process to take place will not be accepted as an excuse for a late scholarship application.

The firm scholarship application deadline is January 31, 2024. For more information, contact Kim Simpkins at (252) 493-7902 or ksimpkins@email.pittcc.edu, or visit the PCC Foundation website at www.pittccfoundation.com.
