5. Thesis Writing Bootcamp Coming Soon!

Here’s your chance to make some money, write a lot, and make a difference for other graduate students. The Graduate Student Organization invites applicants to serve as Drill Instructor for our Dissertation and Thesis Boot Camps! GSO Boot Camps are week-long intensive writing sessions for graduate students to focus on their theses and dissertations. Our mission is to help students create the best possible work in the best possible environment. We need responsible, organized, and energetic graduate students to plan these events, handle daily setup, and administer boot camp policies. In compensation for your service, you’ll receive an hourly wage of $9.50 and we’ll waive your registration fee. You can apply here.

We will be offering at three Boot Camps during Spring Break (March 9-13), Early Summer (May 11-15), and Late Summer (August 17-21). Each Boot Camp site will have three Drill Instructors to oversee the approximately 15-20 students assigned to that site.

Your duties will include:
– In consultation with the GSO president, arranging two workshops with Georgetown faculty, graduate students, and staff during your boot camp.
– Building relationships with faculty, graduate students, and administrators to support the mission of GSO Boot Camps.
– Working with GSO and Center for Student Engagement (CSE) staff to supply refreshments and organize rooms for the boot camps.
– Setting up and managing the rooms during the event (about 30 minutes/day or less).
– Coordinating catering (daily coffee and two luncheons), in partnership with CSP staff and GSO.
– Enforcing boot camp policies regarding registration fees and deposits.
– Helping to improve GSO Boot Camp processes.
– Of course, once Boot Camp begins for the day, we hope that you will spend the time writing your own dissertation or thesis.

Only Georgetown graduate students enrolled in Graduate School of Arts and Sciences degree programs (including Med Center, MSB, SFS, Nursing, and GPPI but not including M.D., Law Center, or SCS programs) may apply. We welcome applications from students at all stages of their programs, but we favor students in their second year of a Master’s program or the candidacy stage of their doctoral work. Students in all disciplines should apply. You must be able to attend every day of boot camp from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. as well as commit about 10 hours over the several weeks leading up to the program for organizing workshops and coordinating catering. You may apply to work both sessions or just for one. We will hire a minimum of two students and a maximum of five.

Please apply. There will be at least one interview round before we announce our choices in mid-January. Please email GSOGeorgetown@gmail.com with any questions you may have. The application available is here.

Boot Camps are presented by the Graduate Student Organization and co-sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

The

​ ​

Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Georgetown University welcomes submissions for the 8th annual Graduate Portuguese and Hispanic Symposium (GRAPHSY) within the theme Bridging the Gap: Intersections, Convergences, and Dialogues. This year’s conference provides a forum in which to share research that bridges gaps within and between the fields of Spanish and Portuguese Literature/Culture and Linguistics. GRAPHSY 2015 will build on this theme by examining the ways in which research crosses physical, linguistic, and psychological divides. We invite presentations that explore connections between domains of literature and linguistics, create links between various fields, and foster interdisciplinary exchange.

The conference will be held April 10-11, 2015. For more information about submitting an abstract please visit our page on HoyaLink: https://hoyalink.georgetown.edu/organization/gspso/news/details/56838?fromCampus=False

  1. Thesis Writing Bootcamp Coming Soon! 

Here’s your chance to make some money, write a lot, and make a difference for other graduate students. The Graduate Student Organization invites applicants to serve as Drill Instructor for our Dissertation and Thesis Boot Camps! GSO Boot Camps are weeklong intensive writing sessions for graduate students to focus on their theses and dissertations. Our mission is to help students create the best possible work in the best possible environment. We need responsible, organized, and energetic graduate students to plan these events, handle daily setup, and administer boot camp policies. In compensation for your service, you’ll receive an hourly wage of $9.50 and we’ll waive your registration fee. You can apply here.

We will be offering at three Boot Camps during Spring Break (March 9-13), Early Summer (May 11-15), and Late Summer (August 17-21). Each Boot Camp site will have three Drill Instructors to oversee the approximately 15-20 students assigned to that site.

Your duties will include:
– In consultation with the GSO president, arranging two workshops with Georgetown faculty, graduate students, and staff during your boot camp.
– Building relationships with faculty, graduate students, and administrators to support the mission of GSO Boot Camps.
– Working with GSO and Center for Student Engagement (CSE) staff to supply refreshments and organize rooms for the boot camps.
– Setting up and managing the rooms during the event (about 30 minutes/day or less).
– Coordinating catering (daily coffee and two luncheons), in partnership with CSP staff and GSO.
– Enforcing boot camp policies regarding registration fees and deposits.
– Helping to improve GSO Boot Camp processes.
– Of course, once Boot Camp begins for the day, we hope that you will spend the time writing your own dissertation or thesis.

Only Georgetown graduate students enrolled in Graduate School of Arts and Sciences degree programs (including Med Center, MSB, SFS, Nursing, and GPPI but not including M.D., Law Center, or SCS programs) may apply. We welcome applications from students at all stages of their programs, but we favor students in their second year of a Master’s program or the candidacy stage of their doctoral work. Students in all disciplines should apply. You must be able to attend every day of boot camp from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. as well as commit about 10 hours over the several weeks leading up to the program for organizing workshops and coordinating catering. You may apply to work both sessions or just for one. We will hire a minimum of two students and a maximum of five.

Please apply by December 19. There will be at least one interview round before we announce our choices in mid-January. Please email GSOGeorgetown@gmail.com with any questions you may have. The application available is here.
Boot Camps are presented by the Graduate Student Organization and co-sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
