Engaging Tomorrow’s Leaders: ASM Appoints 30 Young Ambassadors

In light of the surge in youth population worldwide, a 72% increase in ASM's international student membership in 2012, and the potential to tap into student enthusiasm around global issues, the Society has launched the International Young Ambassador Program. The goal of this initiative is three-fold: 1) foster cohesion among aspiring microbiologists within their countries; 2) engage both U.S. and international university students in collaboration through scientific exchange; and 3) create life-long ASM supporters from the next generation of scientists.

Following a highly competitive selection process, 30 Young Ambassadors were appointed to the initial cohort. The enthusiastic response to the call for applications illustrates ASM's opportunity to leverage our international student and early career members interested in contributing toward the Society's global mission.
