The GW Writing Center is a welcoming academic environment where all members of the GW community can receive free, dedicated attention to their writing and research projects. The Center's trained undergraduate, graduate, and faculty consultants represent a broad multidisciplinary range of expertise and can work with writers from the very early stages of brainstorming, through drafting and revising, all the way to polishing for publication. Rather than providing proofreading and editing, the Writing Center helps people become stronger editors of their own work and strengthen their abilities as writers.

The Center for Undergraduate Fellowship and Research provides students and alumni with information, guidance and support as they learn about and apply for research opportunities and national fellowship competitions.
