The application period for the first session of the 2019 Dissertation Write-In is now open. This program is open to doctoral students from all disciplines and the first session will take place ​Monday, June 1​7 through Thursday, June 20.

The Dissertation Write-In is a free, four-day intensive writing workshop aimed at helping Ph.D. students in the middle stages of their dissertation process. Participants will gain strategies and tools to create positive writing habits and thus become more efficient and productive writers.

You are eligible to apply if you are a Ph.D. student who:

  • Has advanced to candidacy;
  • Has completed a chapter of your dissertation; and
  • Is committed to attending all sessions of the Write-In.

To apply, please complete the online application by Friday, May 10. For more information about the Dissertation Write-In, click here.

Please note:
Each session is limited to 20 participants. As part of its efforts to provide financial support for graduate students who are engaged in short-term intensive campus programs that contribute to their development as academic professionals, the Graduate Division will provide a Professional Development Award to the participants of the Dissertation Write-In. A fellowship of $400 will be awarded to students who successfully complete all four days of the program. Note that this fellowship is available to students regardless of P-status.

Can't make it to the session in June? Don't worry, there will be another session from September 16-19. Applications for this session will open in late July.
