The Proposal Preparation Workshop is designed to prepare graduate students to research and
write their dissertation or thesis proposals. The workshop will focus on the needs of students in
the STEM disciplines. We have scheduled a number of speakers who will explain how to 1) write
proposals for the two broad disciplines (Engineering and Sciences), 2) do research for your
literature review, and 3) organize your research with RefWorks.
You will need to follow up with your faculty and graduate advisors to get the specific proposal
requirements for your department. This event is not a writing camp; see the TGS website for other
