PHE Application Instructions

PWS Peer Health Educators serve an important role on Western’s campus and there are a limited number of positions available each year. The written application is your first opportunity to let us know why we should choose you to be a part of this program. Applications will be evaluated on both the content and quality of your written responses.

  • Respond to the questions using clear, specific examples and experiences. Please limit your responses to 2 paragraphs maximum.
  • The form cannot be saved and completed later, so it may be helpful to type your responses in a separate document and cut and paste them into the web form when you’re ready to submit. Please proofread your responses (or ask a friend to do so) and make any needed edits before you submit.
  • You will receive a confirmation message when you have successfully submitted your form, and you will be contacted soon after the application deadline on March 15, 2020 regarding next steps.

PHE Application Accommodations

Additionally, any student may contact PWS via email pws@wwu.edu or call 360-650-2993 to discuss alternative format options for application submission. Any alternative materials must address each question in the standard application.
