Delaware Diplomats


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


The purpose of the DelawareDiplomats is to give students the opportunity to engage in cultural and international events on campus. The Delaware Diplomats are UD 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 values global citizenship, 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.


Want to become a Delaware Diplomat? The application for the 2015-16 academic year will open in early June.  


Who should apply? The program is open to all freshmen, sophomores and juniors! Anyone who is interested in engaging with the global community is welcome to apply. However, please note that students cannot use their scholarship until the year after they participate in the Diplomats. For 2015-16 participants, the scholarship would not be available until Winter Session 2017.



Please contact Rachel Garcia or Matt Drexler if you have further questions about Delaware Diplomats.
