This February and March, FIUTS (Foundation for International Understanding Through Students) will be hosting two short-term visiting programs for undergraduate students from two universities in Japan – Tokyo Institute of Technology and Ehime University. The Tokyo Tech program is a two day program on February 25th and 27th. The Education and Diversity Program with Ehime University will be in Seattle from March 3rd through March 17th. Both programs will explore U.S. culture and education while expanding participants’ English language skills.
We are currently looking for 14 UW students to volunteer as Japan Programs Ambassadors for the duration of both programs. Ambassadors act as peer mentors, cultural liaisons, student leaders, and friends for the visiting students. All current UW students are eligible to apply. Students with specific interests in Japan, Japanese language, education, or cross-cultural communication are encouraged to apply. Applications are due Wednesday, February 20th and can be found online at www.fiuts.org/japan-ambassadors
