College Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors–this one’s for you!

For the second year in a row, ESSENCE is looking for ambitious, creative and talented college students to serve as our College Ambassadors.

With blog posts and on-camera appearances, our Ambassadors will help capture the ESSENCE spirit on campus.

Selected candidates will be paid for their work (ten hours per week) with real-world experience in enhanced research, leadership, and communication skills not to mention the perks of some exclusive invites to ESSENCE events.

Both women and men between the ages of 18 and 25 with a GPA of 2.8 GPA or higher attending a four-year accredited college or university in Michigan, Georgia, Virginia, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Washington D.C., Maryland or Louisiana are encouraged to apply.

For consideration, please submit two fun and creative 250 to 300 word essays on why you should be an ESSENCE College Ambassador along with your resume by June 24th at 5 p.m. EDT.
