Are you exhausted from spinning your wheels while writing your dissertation?

Do you feel like you will never finish graduate school?

Do you wish you had access to an evidence-based course that could guide you step by step through the dissertation process?

If you’re ready to release the stress around your dissertation and reclaim your life, you need The Dissertation Lab app right now. For less than the cost of a pizza each month, you can step up your writing game, rapidly finish each chapter, and experience the joy of graduating with your doctorate degree.

In an academic market filled with pricey coaches and courses, The Dissertation Lab app stands out from the rest because it:

  • Has been peer-reviewed by tenure track professors and graduate students like you.

  • Was developed by an award-winning, published researcher.

  • Is based on The Done Dissertation's Signature Mentorship Program.

  • Saves you hundreds and even thousands of dollars on pricey courses and coaches.  

  • Delivers over 45 tried and true research-based lessons and assignments to supercharge your writing. 

  • Constantly evolves with new lessons added each month.

  • Gives you the freedom to learn whenever and wherever you want. Say goodbye to appointments, classes, and Zoom calls.

  • Was created with graduate students' budgets in mind.


The Dissertation Lab App is the most affordable and comprehensive dissertation support tool on the market. This combination of affordability and expert teaching isn’t just a fluke — it is by design.   Until now, access to quality dissertation coaching has been limited to students who are privileged enough to afford the cost of hiring a private instructor.  The Dissertation Lab levels the playing field by meeting the needs of students from underrepresented and working class backgrounds who need support the most, but also need to stick to their budgets.
