An academic proposal is the first step a graduate student will take before embarking on a major research project or thesis. The purpose of an academic proposal is to convince the powers that be that you have an idea with merit, that the suppositions proposed are sound and that the outcomes will be relevant, important or groundbreaking. A successful academic proposal will lead to approval of a thesis topic or major work.
