Application Process

Writing Fellows Application period will open in Spring 2018.  

Every year, Writing Fellows are chosen from applicants in the current first-year, sophomore, and junior cohorts. These students are professionally developed to provide one-on-one writing support as peer tutors in courses across the curriculum. Writing Fellows respond to first drafts of papers and then meet with writers in face-to-face conferences to discuss their plans for revision. Fellow typically work with 6-10 writers per semester. All new Fellows enroll in English 1190M during their first semester as Fellows (The Theory and Practice of Writing) and receive an $800 stipend per semester for their work.
