Alumni Ambassadors

Alumni Ambassadors

You have a unique perspective and appreciation for the value of a Houghton University education and campus experience. Houghton alumni (and their family members!) are invited to share that with future Houghton students through a gift of your time.

Make Connections and Provide Student Contact Information

Once you have completed the training and are certified, you’ll have the ability to directly offer prospective students a guaranteed $500 Alumni Ambassador Scholarship. This award is renewable each year for up to four years. We are making these funds available to you from our student scholarship fund due to your connection to the College.

Start making connections and providing us with prospective student contact information by sending us a simple email ( or by filling out the form below on their behalf (assuming they’ve given you permission). This is how you’ll know you are fully certified and will make it easy for you to share with future highlanders.

Receive Your Digital Certificates

When you encourage students to apply, provide them with a copy of a digital certificate we will provide for you that they will submit as part of their application materials. This certificate will associate the student with your efforts and also help us to appropriately award the student when we make an acceptance decision and send a financial aid package.
