The Gulf Coast State College Foundation has an established relationship with the College’s Writing and Reading Lab. Any scholarship applicant can use the Lab’s tutorial resources to help with writing answers to the application essay questions. The Lab’s staff will assist in helping applicants with composition development, organization, mechanics, editing, grammar and punctuation. All of this is free of charge.
It is important to noted that over 60% of a scholarship application’s score comes from the answers to the essay questions. The Lab’s services are free and open to all scholarship applicants – even high school students. The College’s Writing and Reading Lab is located in the Rosenwald Classroom Building in rooms 108 and 110. No appointments are necessary; however, lab hours and tutor availability may vary. If you have questions, please contact the Lab at [email protected] or (850) 769-1551 ext. 1022.
