Appointment Set up an appointment with an experienced professional, full-time Writing Specialist if you want to get in-depth feedback for any kind of writing you’re working on, or if you just want to toss around some ideas. This is best done well in advance of deadlines to maximize redrafting time and effectiveness.
Online When submitting a draft for an email consultation, be sure to email us your prompt along with the paper, and please indicate no more than two things you would like us to look for when reading it. Our response time will depend upon the volume of papers received.
Peer Tutors Peer tutors hold drop-in hours during the evening, where you can get advice about overall writing strategies, general editing, and research strategies.
Scholarship Opportunities Read through the Scholarship Opportunities Program website and select a few scholarships you are interested in, and then please fill out the Prospective Scholarship Winners Form. Send this along with an informal Statement of Purpose & Goals, a CV/extended resume and an unofficial transcript to sklrship@uci.edu to make an advising appointment with scholarship staff.
