Lunch will be provided daily during the Dissertation boot camp.  

The University of Delaware College of Arts and Sciences and the University Writing Center are joining forces to offer an intensive workshop for Ph.D. students who are writing their dissertations or have found their writing progress stalled. 

The dissertation boot camp will be held from June 2-13. It is open to doctoral students in the College of Arts and Sciences, and those who previously have participated in a dissertation boot camp at UD are welcome to apply. 

Participants will spend the majority of their time writing; however, the workshop will also include brief discussions on topics of common interest to dissertation students, such as motivation, goal setting, time management, and the writing habits of successful and prolific academic writers.

Students accepted to the program will commit to attending from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, for two consecutive weeks.  Writing Program faculty will provide time, space, and professional tutorial support to help students progress on their projects. Lunch will also be provided.

To apply, participants must write a brief proposal (no more than 300 words) explaining what they will accomplish during the workshop. In addition, faculty advisers must nominate their students for this workshop, and a brief e-mail will suffice. Applicants will be chosen based upon time to degree completion, the importance of the workshop at this stage of the project, and broad disciplinary representation within the College of Arts and Sciences.

Applications are due May 16 and should be emailed to Michael McCamley at boot-camp@win.udel.edu

The application form is available at this website. Complete all of the fields, save the document using last and first names (example: McCamleyMichael.docx), and send it as an email attachment to boot-camp@win.udel.edu.
