Welcome to the PhD Sisters Group

Hello PhD Sister Sister,

Welcome to the Ph.D. Sisters Group! The original doctoral support group for women. I am the administrator and founder of the Ph.D. Sisters aka the Sisterhood. The group is a support group open to all women who have completed or are in the process of completing a doctoral/ Ph.D. program. The women in the group come from a variety of backgrounds and universities. We engage in discussions about the Ph.D. process. There is no fee to join or participate in the facebook group.

Please read this entire message and complete the pdf version of the PhD Sisters Stay Connected form. You will be added to the group, after receipt of your completed Form. (applies to new members). Email questions/comments to phdsisters@gmail.com.

Once added introduce yourself, share your specific inquires about the PhD process, and take the time to browse around under the “Files”. There are samples of approved Quantitative and Qualitative SMR forms, Change Matrix, PowerPoint presentation for the dissertation defense call, and guidelines for postings in the group.

Create your doctoral profile by joining the Pi Eta Delta Sorority ( International PhD Sisters Association (IPSA). Visit www.pietadeltasorority.com. We provide exposure for doctoral learners, ABD’s, and scholar practitioners by listing them in an online directory. Support the Sisterhood on the sites below:
