Do you have what it takes to bring some ESSENCE flair to your campus? We want to hear from you! 

Calling all college Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors! 

ESSENCE is looking for three vivacious college students to serve as our College Ambassadors. Through on-camera appearances and blog posts, our Ambassadors will help us bring the spirit of ESSENCE to campus. Those selected will be paid for their work (eight to ten hours per week) and gain real-world experience, while receiving perks such as a one-year ESSENCE subscription and exclusive invites to ESSENCE events.

Both female and male applicants who are attending a four-year accredited college or university in Michigan, Georgia, Virginia, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Washington D.C., Maryland or Louisiana are welcome to apply. You must be between the ages of 18 and 25 and have a 2.8 GPA or higher. To apply, please submit a 250 to 300 word essay on why you should be an ESSENCE College Ambassador (be creative!) along with your resume by August 18 at 5 p.m. EDT.

Three winners will be chosen on October 9th. We can't wait to hear from you!
