Using qualitative data collected from more than twenty universities across the US, Writing Support for International Graduate Students describes and theorizes agency- and advocacy-driven practices, programs, and policies that are most effective in helping international students learn graduate-level writing and communication skills. It uses compelling narratives and cases to illustrate a variety of program models and support practices that fostered the students’ process of academic transition and success. Employing an ecological framework, the book seeks to advance academic conversation about how writing scholars/instructors and program administrators, as well as other academic service professionals working with this student body, can formulate policies, develop programs, and implement practices that best help these students grow as writers and scholars in their disciplines.

How to Write and Publish Effectively: Writing Support Group Guidelines This report describes a writing support and accountability program voluntarily organized by and for a grassroots community in South Asia. Organized early 2020 -- which happened to be in the middle of the first wave of the Covid-19 global pandemic -- this program recruited 24 scholars from a pool of 216 applicants from across South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Nepal, and Pakistan). A sign up survey asked interested scholars, who were invited through networking/ snowballing on social media, to describe a research project from which they would like to write an academic journal manuscript, learning and implementing writing skills along the way. While they were encouraged to share an empirical research project with a social impact in mind, theoretical projects were also included. We have described the broader social context and challenges influencing the vision and mission

Re/Writing the Center illuminates how core writing center pedagogies and institutional arrangements are complicated by the need to create intentional, targeted support for advanced graduate writers. Most writing center tutors are undergraduates, whose lack of familiarity with the genres, preparatory knowledge, and research processes integral to graduate-level writing can leave them underprepared to assist graduate students. Complicating the issue is that many of the graduate students who take advantage of writing center support are international students. The essays in this volume show how to navigate the divide between traditional writing center theory and practices, developed to support undergraduate writers, and the growing demand for writing centers to meet the needs of advanced graduate writers. Contributors address core assumptions of writing center pedagogy, such as the concept of peers and peer tutoring, the emphasis on one-to-one tutorials, the positioning of tutors as generalists rather than specialists, and even the notion of the writing center as the primary location or center of the tutoring process. Re/Writing the Center offers an imaginative perspective on the benefits writing centers can offer to graduate students and on the new possibilities for inquiry and practice graduate students can inspire in the writing center.

International students are often taken for granted in higher education institutions in the United States. Many college and university administrators are unaware of the initiatives of other nations to attract international students and of the need to support these students. Higher education journals have not focused much attention on international students. International Students: Strengthening a Critical Resource argues that U.S. institutions of higher education must increase their awareness of international student issues. Andrade reviews related research and highlights creative solutions and programming for the successful support of international students. The book provides practical, hands-on, broadly applicable solutions to addressing international student issues. Additionally, it serves as a practical guide for identifying and adopting best practices for serving international students.

Learning from the Lived Experiences of Graduate Student Writers is a timely resource for understanding and resolving some of the issues graduate students face, particularly as higher education begins to pay more critical attention to graduate student success. Offering diverse approaches for assisting this demographic, the book bridges the gap between theory and practice through structured examination of graduate students’ narratives about their development as writers, as well as researched approaches for enabling these students to cultivate their craft. The first half of the book showcases the voices of graduate student writers themselves, who describe their experiences with graduate school literacy through various social issues like mentorship, access, writing in communities, and belonging in academic programs. Their narratives illuminate how systemic issues significantly affect graduate students from historically oppressed groups. The second half accompanies these stories with proposed solutions informed by empirical findings that provide evidence for new practices and programming for graduate student writers. Learning from the Lived Experiences of Graduate Student Writers values student experience as an integral part of designing approaches that promote epistemic justice. This text provides a fresh, comprehensive, and essential perspective on graduate writing and communication support that will be useful to administrators and faculty across a range of disciplines and institutional contexts.

Getting a graduate degree is definitely a smart move. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average salary for a college graduate is less than $28,000. But, this figure rises to $37,000 for master's degree recipients and to more than $66,000 for those with doctoral or professional degrees.However, graduate school is expensive. It can cost $20,000 or more to complete a master's degree and up to $75,000 to finish some doctoral or professional degrees. That's more than most students can afford to pay on their own. Where can they turn for help?Reference Service Press provides the answer to that question in a unique three-volume series, which describes thousands of funding sources available specifically to support study and research on the graduate school level. Each volume is sold separately and deals with a different discipline: the social sciences, the sciences, and the humanities.In Money for Graduate Students in the Social Sciences, more than 1,000 funding opportunities are described in detail. And, it's easy to use the directory. No straight alphabetical listing of programs here; instead, you'll be able to customize your search by zeroing in on entries grouped by both level (master's or doctoral) and purpose (study or research). You can even access the programs by specific subject, title, sponsor, residency requirements, tenability, and deadline date.Now, in one place, you can find all the programs that are available to help you pay for a master's or doctoral degree in accounting, advertising, anthropology and ethnology, business administration, demography and statistics, economics, education, geography, international relations, law, library/information science, marketing, political science, psychology, sociology, or any other social science. There's never been a book like this
