Dear Lehigh faculty, staff, and students,

Please consider nominating your strong students, trainees, supervisees, and peers for the TRAC Writing Fellows Program. TRAC Fellows provide effective peer tutoring for students and consultation services for faculty who include writing in their courses across disciplines and the four undergraduate colleges. We need your help to identify desirable candidates for our new class of fellows for the 2024–25 school year.

Support for the program has always been excellent. I hope you will help again this spring semester by nominating promising undergraduates to join this special group of trained and highly motivated peer writing tutors. Know that TRAC Fellows in all majors consistently report that being in the program enhances their academic success.   

Nominating your students

Who are your best current and recent students, those who have shown special abilities in writing, oral communication, leadership skills, organization, and reliability? These are the qualities we seek in candidates for the program. The TRAC Fellows Program is open to students from all academic majors who have at least one year remaining at Lehigh. Submit your nominations here. You are able to submit the Google Form multiple times if you would like to nominate several student-writers. You can also email and attach a Word doc or spreadsheet if you would like to nominate a number of students.

Questions? Contact Dr. Justin Greenlee, Director of Writing Across the Curriculum at Lehigh, at

Please send your student nominations by Friday, March 1st. Once nominations are collected, we will reach out to nominees to submit application materials. Nominated students are under no obligation to apply. They will be sent a special invitation to apply to the program and will be exempt, by virtue of your nomination, from the standard student and faculty references required of non-nominated applicants. We will also hold special information sessions for your nominees. You can learn more about the nomination and application process in the "Becoming a TRAC Fellow" portion of the WAC web page

If you feel you don’t know enough about the writing skills of your excellent students who are otherwise good communicators, feel free to nominate them anyway. We’ll assess their writing skills through the application process, and participation in the program will improve their writing significantly.

Thank you, as always, for your support.
