Become the next OECD Student Ambassador and Win a FREE Trip to Paris
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is the Organization that since 1961 has provided fact-based analysis and policy advice to help governments achieve and measure progress. To this day we continue to promote better policies for better lives.
As we begin our third year of this highly successful program, the OECD Washington Center is inviting undergraduate students from different campuses across the US and Canada to apply for this exciting year-long ambassadorship. Our goal is to select well-qualified and motivated students with demonstrated interest in economics and international relations. The student ambassadors will engage with the OECD and plan activities to raise awareness of the organization and its work on their campuses. The details of the program are spelled out in the attached document which we invite you to post and disseminate in your department. Also, attached is a flyer with information about the current 2011-2012 class of OECD Student Ambassadors.
The time commitment will include: an initial training weekend in Washington, DC on June 2nd and 3rd 2012 and work should not exceed 40 hours per semester. Based on their performance, two student ambassadors will be invited to attend the OECD Forum in Paris in May/June 2013. Expenses for both of these trips plus a budget related to promotional activities on campus will be paid by the OECD. All other Student Ambassadors who have successfully completed the program will receive a certificate of participation and a letter of recommendation.
Please encourage the students from your university to submit applications and should you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
