Ambassador Awards

The University of New Orleans and the Division of International Education believe strongly that an international educational experience should be made available to as many qualified students as possible. To this end, a limited number of financial awards for study abroad, "Ambassador Awards," will be made available to UNO students who exhibit high academic achievement, whose academic plans would benefit most from this experience, and who demonstrate financial need.
