The East Central Writing Centers Association is pleased to announce that it will offer up to five awards for tutor presenters who are from institutions in the region that have not previously presented at the ECWCA conference or have not had a representative of their institution present at the ECWCA conference during the past three years (2011, 2012, and 2013).

The awards cover the registration fees and include a $200 gas card donated by BP. A check for the registration fee and the gas card will be presented during the 2014 conference banquet. We’ll notify winners of the award by March 12, 2014.
