Give Back

Continue the Journey

Time spent studying abroad is only the beginning of the process. Phillips Ambassadors are expected to share their experience and extend its impact through a collective or individual give back component 

Upon accepting the Phillips Ambassadors scholarship, students agree to give back to the Carolina community and to their hometowns through a variety of outreach opportunities designed to share their experience in Asia with others.

Students have found a variety of ways to give back, including organizing outreach presentations about their study abroad experience at their hometown high school, coordinating a photo exhibit on the UNC campus, writing an article for their hometown newspaper or a campus publication, and inviting guest speakers to campus to discuss a topic of interest and relevance to their study abroad experience.

Individual or collective projects are accepted. Projects are developed by students, but must be approved by the Phillips Ambassadors program to meet the give back requirement.
