Delaware Diplomats

Participate in global events on campus.
Connect with other UD students.
Earn scholarships for study abroad.


The purpose of the Delaware Diplomats is to give students the opportunity to engage in cultural and international events on campus. The Delaware Diplomats are freshmen and transfer students with an interest in international exploration, global cultures, and education abroad. By participating in on-campus events with a global focus, students can earn scholarship funds for UD study abroad programs.


Why join the Delaware Diplomats?


The University of Delaware Path to Prominence Global Initiative calls for students to become Global Citizens, which requires a sustained effort to connect students with the global community, both on and off campus. The Delaware Diplomats will build these connections and foster a global worldview. The program aims to improve students’ cross-cultural competencies, a valuable skill in a global economy.


And of course…. scholarships for study abroad! Students can earn between $300-$1500 to be applied to UD study abroad or internship abroad programs.
