Office of the Dean of the Graduate School

Feeling stuck at home and stuck on your writing? Don’t despair! The central elements of a productive Dissertation Bootcamp—space to write, focused writing time, camaraderie, and the opportunity to reflect on the writing process—have been reimagined for a remote format! Bootcamp offers a more flexible schedule to adapt to the demands of working from home. In addition to the required opening and closing sessions, sign up for your choice of 5 weekly online group writing and debriefing sessions, each led by a graduate Writing Center Fellow, to complement writing that you do on your own.


A motivational deposit of $50, paid by check, is required. Your check is not cashed upon receipt; it is returned (or shredded on your behalf) when you’ve fulfilled your Bootcamp commitment. The deadline to apply is Monday, June 21 at 5pm Eastern Time.


Dissertation Bootcamp has limited enrollment. To apply, please submit a Bootcamp Application. For more information and a detailed schedule, please visit the Bootcamp website.


A joint initiative of the Princeton Writing Program and the Graduate School.
