Writing Lab

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.

Essay Writing Workshops – Wednesday, February 12th, 2:00-4:00 p.m. (CST) and Wednesday, February 26th, 3:00-5:00 p.m. (CST). Foundation staff and Lab tutors will be available to answer questions and provided essay writing assistance. No reservations are necessary-walk-ins are welcome. Please bring a written draft of your essay answers or be able to access your scholarship application. For more information contact Kara Gray at (850) 872-3862 or [email protected].

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.
