The application period for the second session of the 2022 Dissertation Write-In is now open. This program is open to doctoral students from all disciplines and the session will take place Monday, September 12 through Thursday, September 15. This session is tentatively scheduled to be held in person; however, due to the rise in COVID-19 cases locally, the facilitator will decide by August 15 whether some or all of the session will be moved to virtual. 

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, August 5. For more information about the Dissertation Write-In, click here.

Please note:
 The September session is limited to a total of 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 $500 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 and receiving the fellowship funding requires full time registration in the Fall 2022 Quarter.
