We are pleased to announce the 2017 Dissertation Institute, an interactive workshop for underrepresented (African American, native American, Pacific Island and Hispanic American) graduate students in engineering. The primary goal is to address issues that prolong completion times for those at the dissertation proposal preparation and dissertation completion stages of the targeted population. The Dissertation Institute will take place June 11th – 16th on the University of Maryland, Baltimore County campus. The Institute will focus on skills and strategies needed to successfully complete the dissertation process and provide networking opportunities to build connections for future collaborative career advancement. In this Institute participants, will be able to build new writing habits, work on their dissertation or dissertation proposal, and learn skills that will help them continue making progress when they return back to their institutions. Participants will be housed in a private room; will share bathroom with one other participant; receive meals; and be reimbursed for travel costs up to $500. Please click the following link www.dissertationinstitute.com to apply for participation in 2017 Dissertation Institute. As a part of the application process, participants will be asked to identify barriers that have impeded their progress to completing their dissertation and to provide suggestions for additional topics to be presented.
