About the program
Thank you for your interest in working during Welcome to Michigan as a fund-raiser for your group. Sponsored or Voluntary Student Organizations that serve as Welcome Ambassadors will receive $75 for every 5 group members who work (up to 15 members or $225). If not all of your expected group members show up for their assigned shifts you may forfeit some or all of your stipend. Applying for the fundraiser does not guarantee that all of your group will be placed, depending on overall campus interest to give as many groups as possible the opportunity to raise funds.
Each Welcome Ambassador will receive a free Welcome to Michigan t-shirt to wear while they are working. The group coordinator will need to provide the group's SOAS account number when you show up to work to receive payment.
A list of available opportunities is listed below. Please check with your group members to see how many (5, 10, or 15) members can assist with the following events. Then indicate all of the events you are able to assist with, and we will schedule so that groups are assigned to at least one event on a first submitted, first assigned basis. You will be notified of your assigned event(s) by mid-August.
Applying for the fundraiser does not guarantee that all of your group will be placed, depending on overall campus interest to give as many groups as possible the opportunity to raise funds. Groups are generally selected to work based upon their availability (it is best to be flexible to work at a variety of events) and the date which we received your application below.
To express interest, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your group contact, group name, e-mail address, SOAS Account number and group availability. Please remember that group sizes must be 5, 10 or 15.
