Integrative Learning Opportunities
Geneseo Student Ambassador Awards provide up to $5,000 to support change-making, student-designed projects combining independent learning, innovative approaches to problem solving and community-based action. Projects can take place on campus, in the region, or even internationally: wherever you want to make an impact that matters to others. We welcome individual applications and applications from teams of students; students from all majors are encouraged to apply.
