Doctoral Capstone Preproposal Starter Kit:

Writing Resources for Doctoral Students in the Initial Stages of Development
These resources are for doctoral students at the premise and prospectus stages and who are not yet working on their official proposal documents.


Know what the requirements are for your program and what courses, forms, and documents you need to complete before you can start work on your official proposal. Read degree and program guidelines carefully and make sure you have up-to-date copies of important documents easily accessible for quick reference.
