2018 Dissertation and Thesis Jump-Start Camp

May 29 - June 1, 10 - 3

Get a jump start on your thesis or dissertation with this four-day writing camp for UVM graduate students who have approved proposals and have moved or are ready to move into drafting. Through short workshops, healthy lunches, plenty of caffeine, and loads of writing time, the Jump Start Camp will launch you into a rewarding summer of writing.

The camp takes place in 302 Bailey Howe (the Writing in the Disciplines' Fulwiler Room) 10-3 pm each day with the option of adding 9-10 am and 3-4 pm additional writing time.

For more information, view our camp FAQs!

Space is limited to 18. Please complete the application by May 16 to be considered.

Completed applications must include a check, payable to UVM, for $50 to be deposited (in support of future camps) only if you do not complete all four days of camp!

"Camp was an essential tool that helped me start dissertation writing. I developed writing strategies, learned to plan ahead, and, most importantly, got a lot done." - 2016 Jump-Start Camp Participant
