Each year, some 25-30 honors undergraduates tutor as Honors Writing Fellows. The Fellows assist with courses in a variety of fields, enabling faculty to emphasize writing as a way to learn. The program improves student writing and learning, while enabling faculty to accomplish more with their courses. It also benefits the Fellows themselves, who love the training, the teaching, the ways this work helps to improve their own writing and opens up professional opportunities to them.
All current members of the Honors at Iowa community are eligible to apply and are encouraged to participate in our annual scholarship competition. Honors at Iowa uses a UNIVERSAL online application form, which means that qualified students only need to submit ONE complete application to be considered for most of our scholarship opportunities.
