Apply now to become a GLAAD Campus Ambassador

GLAAD is seeking to train and work with current undergraduate students as our Campus Ambassadors for the 2017-2018 academic year. GLAAD Campus Ambassadors help build sustainable and inclusive programming for LGBTQ and ally university students and youth, all while learning GLAAD’s best practices on leveraging media to create change.

GLAAD Campus Ambassadors contribute to GLAAD’s mission of accelerating acceptance for LGBTQ people by producing dynamic, educational media content relevant to the lived experiences of queer youth. Campus Ambassadors are crucial representatives for LGBTQ youth and, with support from GLAAD, can reach a national audience. In the last year, Campus Ambassadors have been featured in publications and outlets such as Billboard, CNN, Seventeen, Teen Vogue, The New York Times, Entertainment Tonight, Obsessee, Autostraddle, Mashable, and more.

Additionally, Campus Ambassadors have played a fundamental role in the creation of sustainable and inclusive programming for youth. In the past year, these incredible students launched a campaign against cybercrime that targets LGBTQ youth, emboldened their campuses to stand up against anti-LGBTQ bullying on Spirit Day, and organized a “Justice for All” rally in the wake of the 2016 presidential election.

Behind the scenes, GLAAD equipped Campus Ambassadors with advocacy training, networking skills, and access to GLAAD’s connections of experts and influential spokespeople of the LGBTQ community.

GLAAD looks forward to accepting up to 100 Campus Ambassadors in the 2017-2018 program. To be a GLAAD Campus Ambassador, you must be an undergraduate student enrolled full-time at an accredited (2-year or 4-year) U.S. college or university. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, with an early decision deadline September 8th. To apply online and learn more, visit
