The Delaware Student
Ambassadors Program

Delaware Student Success is excited to present the Student Ambassadors program! This program was created to promote the voice of Delaware high school students.

Delaware high school students are chosen to serve as interns for the Delaware Department of Education’s Higher Education Office to better meet the needs of Delaware students in planning for their futures.

Interns will play a role in all communications on the Delaware Student Success website, social media platforms, text messages and any written documents released from DHEO or DSS Collaborative.

Student Ambassador Internship Program 2023-2024

The Delaware Student Success Internship program in the Delaware Higher Education Office (DHEO) is an exciting opportunity for 8-10 rising 12th-grade students and recent graduates to help change and redesign how Delaware students learn about education and career options after high school. Applications are due April 30, 2023. If you want to be a part of the change, come join us!
