Tempe Dissertation Writing Camp Registration Form

Thank you for your interest in the 2019 Tempe Dissertation Writing Camp facilitated by the Writing Centers in University Academic Success Programs at Arizona State University.

ASU Writing Centers will facilitate the in-person Dissertation Writing Camp from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. during June 17-21, 2019 at the Tempe campus for ASU doctoral students writing their prospectus or for doctoral candidates. The camp is limited to 60 seats, and a $50 program fee is required. A limited number of scholarships have been provided by the Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA). Students who register will be notified if their fee can be covered by the scholarship. 

Who Is Eligible?

The Tempe Dissertation Writing Camp is available to ASU doctoral students who are working on writing their prospectus for defense or who have reached candidacy in an ASU doctoral program, either online or campus-based, prior to the start of camp. Candidacy typically includes successful completion of any required comprehensive examinations, a foreign language exam (if required), and successful defense of the dissertation prospectus (if required). Participants who register for the camp are expected to attend all camp days and participate in completing work on their dissertation.

What Happens During the Camp?

The camp provides participants:

  • Dedicated time and space to write
  • Opportunities to interact with peers to discuss writing-in-progress
  • Optional workshops on topics related to the dissertation writing process 
  • Opportunities to have writing reviewed by a writing center staff member
  • Electronic resources to aid in writing and revision
