PhD Proposal

Writing a good proposal is as important as writing the main body of the project itself. Remember, this is the first and one of the most important steps on the arduous journey that is a PhD.

There are many students who have great ideas for their doctorate thesis. They even manage to put together the resources necessary for carrying out the work. They have the time and the money and the willpower for the hard work that lies ahead. But they fail to put all this together coherently in their dissertation proposal.

There are times when the writing is inadequate and the words do not bring out the intelligence behind the student’s vision. Consequently, the academic board does not understand or appreciate what the student is trying to say and rejects the project.

In order to avoid such problems, it is essential that students sit with a professional writer or a subject matter expert and take their help on framing the proposal. In their company they can choose the right words and make sure that they have formatted the proposal in the correct way. Students should try and see if they can read the proposals of other successful students, so that they get an idea of how a good report is to be written.

Convincing an academic board that sifts through thousands of proposals a year is not easy. Successful proposals are unique and they have a way of standing out. This is where the students should show some ingenuity and ensure that their documents catch the eye of the senior professors.
