What is Thrive PhD?

Thrive PhD

Supportive. Informative. Community.

A place for graduate students to meet, make plans, be held accountable, work together, and get support and guidance on this whole grad school thing. Learn more about what makes us different, and how we can help! 

Thrive PhD is a 12 week program designed to give graduate students support, structure, and resources to make their experience a fulfilling one. We are enrolling NOW for our July - September cohort, but we also offer courses, a free weekly email, and are launching a planner and workbook this year! Here are some of the features that make Thrive PhD unique.

Daily accountability posts

Every week day, members can post about their progress in their small groups. Coaches and other members can comment, cheer, offer suggestions, and generally just care about whether the work and life are getting done.

Curriculum posts & coaching calls

Every week, there's a curriculum post about a grad life topic (teaching! job searching! stress! scheduling!) with resources for you to work through on your own time. We also gather once a week to swap strategies and ask questions in the coaching call - which is also recorded for you to watch later! 


Work Togethers

At least once a week day, members gather in the main chat channel to work together - a member favorite! If you're struggling to show up and work, this is a great tool - low impact (you don't have to shower OR leave the house) but high energy. Work is better when you do it together.

We are expanding our offerings beyond grad students - anyone in the academic ecosystem can benefit from our Jumpstart! course. 

4 weeks of self-paced content, Jumpstart! is designed to be a high energy, supportive way to get a stalled or slow project started again.
