Explore Access to Higher Education
Created in 2014, the Lassonde Ambassador Program is a student-run initiative focused on helping high school students explore higher education and the University of Utah. Each ambassador receives a scholarship to connect with high school students and act as a peer mentor. The outreach opportunities available include hosting classroom visits, workshops, tours, service projects, tabling events, and more. Special emphasis is given to helping first-generation high school students explore careers and opportunities related to innovation, entrepreneurship, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). Get involved by requesting an ambassador or contacting us for more information.
