The Presidential Ambassadors program is a scholarship opportunity for students who display leadership skills and pride in being Lander students. These traits are gauged through an interview process and displayed by the student through high academic achievement. As the face of Lander University, the Presidential Ambassadors are often the first people one meets when visiting the school. The Presidential Ambassadors give tours to prospective students, welcome visitors who are attending performances, and work in the Office of Admissions.
