The ECC Foundation sponsors the student ambassador program each year to reward academic excellence. Student ambassadors must maintain a 3.25 grade point average.

These students give campus tours, host campus activities, recruit students, speak to community groups, assist with orientations and in the bookstore during registration, welcome groups to the campus and assist with ECC Foundation activities.

For their service, the Foundation provides each ambassador with a $500 award, a red sweater set for women and a red sweater for men, an ECC polo shirt and an Ambassador name badge.
