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.

Graciela Arizmendi González was also part of the winners of travel grants. She is from Mexico and conducted research at UNAM in Mexico.
Could you send me a certificate of participation as well as a copy of the travel grant via email please? I need it as part of evidence and to cover requirements for applying to SNI in Mexico.
I will send this request to the 2019 conference organizers.
I’ve contacted the conference organizer about a certificate. Do you have an email address that he can send it to?
