Financial Aid Peer Ambassadors are full-time Amherst College students who have been trained to help enrolled and prospective students navigate the financial aid process during their time at Amherst. Additionally they have a variety of experiences navigating those resources themselvesand are driven to help other Amherst students take advantage of the full breadth of resources available to them.
The peer ambassadors can be found in Frost Cafe Sunday - Thursday evenings from 7-9pm, as well as Sundays from 2-4pm. Our ambassadors have a shared common set of financial aid knowledge, but each has a few areas of expertise that you can approach them about during their office hours, or contact them directly.
