HTI assigns an editor to each Dissertation Year fellow. At this stage students must be ABD and their academic institutions must have approved their thesis proposal. The students meet their assigned editor at the HTI Summer Workshop and attend a series of writers’ workshops to work on the stylistic and syntactic development of their dissertation, and they both sign an agreement that stipulates the requirements for both parties (see below to view/print). All expenses incurred by the editors should follow the HTI expense guidelines (see below to view/print Financial Information). Additionally, the assigned editor will continue to work with the student for a year as they complete their dissertation.
