Opportunity for U.S. Students: Become USA Pavilion Student Ambassadors at Next World Fair in Milan


Application Deadline: October 15, 2014


American college students can now apply to serve as on-the-ground ambassadors for the USA Pavilion at the next world’s fair in Milan, Italy. Now through Oct. 15, 2014, U.S. citizens currently pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees who are at least 18 years of age are invited to apply online to the Student Ambassador Program to represent the United States next year at Expo Milano 2015. Approximately 120 student ambassadors will be selected and notified by Dec. 15, 2014, with online training scheduled to begin in February 2015. Housing, transportation, stipends, emergency medical insurance and other services will be provided through this program. Following their three-month assignment, students will receive a certificate of completion. 


Through this prestigious program – a partnership between the Friends of the USA Pavilion Milano 2015, selected by the U.S. Department of State to organize the U.S. presence at Expo Milano, and the USC Marshall School of Business – two groups of student ambassadors will spend three months at the USA Pavilion from May to October 2015. After completing online and onsite training, they will greet and interact with visitors to the USA Pavilion including top government officials, corporate executives and other guests from around the globe. Student ambassadors will also staff cultural events and other USA Pavilion activities. With the theme “American Food 2.0: United to Feed the Planet,” the USA Pavilion will showcase American innovation in addressing global food issues through a variety of exhibits and events during the six-month world’s fair.
