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, and be thoughtful about the words you choose.
  • 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 read over (or ask a friend) to ensure your application is free from spelling or grammatical errors before you submit.
  • You will receive a confirmation message when you have successfully submitted your form, and you will be contacted shortly thereafter to schedule an interview.

PHE Application Accommodations:

Requests for accommodation or assistance should be directed to Disability Resources for Students located in Old Main 110; additional information is available at: Telephone: 360-650-3083 | Email:

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