Aviation Student Ambassador Application

Aviation Student Ambassador logo.

The Aviation Student Ambassador (ASA) program assists the Aviation Program faculty and staff in the planning, organization, operation, and promotion of selected events and activities on and off the Richmond campus. Similar groups are in place at other universities around the country and there are numerous benefits for both students and faculty alike, but especially for our program as a whole.

Over the past few years. Aviation Student Ambassadors have planned, coordinated, and been invited to a wide variety of events including recruiting events/EKU Spotlight Days, Safety Stand Down, Aviation Career Day, the Kentucky Aviation Hall of Fame, Honor Flight Kentucky, school visits, RGA Airport Open House, and an EKU Board of Regents Meeting. This experience provides excellent networking opportunities and serves as a great resume builder too.

Participation in the ASA program is voluntary and is not a student organization. ASA’s will be selected by program faculty following an application process that will begin today and once selected will serve throughout the upcoming academic year (fall and spring). ASA’s can be re-appointed as long as they are a current, full-time student, in good standing with the program and university, and have faculty approval. Students will be expected to dedicate around 10 hours per month to the program and will work off of a shared calendar to determine which events they participate in.

There are eight (8) positions available for the 2023-2024 academic year.
