2019 Grant & Award Recipients

The National Conference on Peer Tutoring in Writing awarded $6,850.00 in scholarships for peer tutors to travel to its annual conference in Columbus, Ohio. Twenty seven tutors from across the globe were on hand for the first night of the conference when the travel awards were announced. Nineteen peer tutors were awarded travel grants of $150.00 each. Five were given Emerging Scholar Awards of $500.00 each, and were chosen because of they “are making significant contributions to the local, regional, or (inter)national scholarly conversation about peer tutoring through their daily practices.” Three scholars received NCPTW Trustees Awards of $500.00, and are recognized in making significant contributions to writing center pedagogy and theory from institutions that are typically underrepresented at NCPTW.

Travis Adams, chair of the NCPTW Awards Committed noted that NCPTW  continues “our tradition of supporting the scholarly work of an outstanding group of peer tutors.” Adams stated that the Awards Committee was “thoroughly impressed by the strength of the applicants’ materials across the board, and it was our honor to support their contributions to the conference.” Individual high school, undergraduate, or graduate student peer tutors who have proposed a conference presentation (poster, individual paper, workshop, or other) may apply.
