Revised Dissertation Proposal Process

My department is actually revising the dissertation proposal process.  It turns out that where logic and argument fail, money talks.  Both the NSF and NIH have grant funding for graduate student dissertation work. So now the format will be to write an NSF proposal and if it is good enough submit it.  Since this can only be done usefully early in the students career, it becomes a strong impetus to actually plan.
