Who are the Consultants and What Do They Do?

Graduate writing consultants work with advanced writers across UVM’s graduate degree, certificate, post-baccalaureate, and Global Gateway premasters programs. Graduate writing consultants also participate in a paid pre-semester training plus ongoing staff development meetings. The total time commitment per week during the semester is 6 to 10 hours. With advisor permission, most graduate students with assistantships are eligible to join the Graduate Writing Center staff.

How are Consultants Compensated?

Pay for first-time graduate writing consultants is $15 an hour. Additional benefits include eligibility for academic writing tutor certification from the College Reading and Learning Association, enhancement of your own writing skills, and experience in mentoring advanced academic writers within and beyond your academic discipline, including both native and nonnative English speakers. To learn more, read our Graduate Writing Consultants FAQs. If you have additional questions, please write Professor Nancy Welch, Graduate Writing Center coordinator, at gradwriting@uvm.edu.

How Do I Apply?

The Graduate Writing Center is currently fully staffed for the 2018-2019 academic year. However, if you are a skilled writer who would like to support other graduate student writers, you can submit an application at any time for the 2019-2020 school year. Send completed applications, via email or campus mail, with a letter of interest to gradwriting@uvm.edu.

Also recommended: If you have not previously met with a graduate writing consultant, consider making an appointment for a consultation about one of your current writing projects—to give you an inside view of the Graduate Writing Center.
