Student Ambassadors

Ambassador Applications have closed. 

The Doerr Student Ambassador program was formed to create a community of campus leaders dedicated to Doerr's mission of elevating the leadership capacity of Rice students. 

Ambassadors are undergraduate and graduate student leaders at Rice that serve as representatives for the Doerr Institute. As an Ambassador, you gain access to special leader development programs and network with top student leaders on campus.

If you are a club or organization and would like a Student Ambassador to speak to your organization about Doerr programs, please contact us!
