Thank you for your interest in becoming a Peer Health Educator! Please read all the instructions thoroughly before submitting your application.

Steps for Completing the PHE Application Process:

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.
