Make an Appointment

Why do we ask you to complete these steps?

What should you do if you cannot meet the requirements to make an advising appointment?


Step 1: Attend an information session.

Except for those students not in New Haven, attendance at an information session this semester or last is required before scheduling an advising appointment. (Here's why, and here's what to do if you cannot meet this requirement.)


*Students who are unable to attend an entire meeting (arriving late and/or leaving early) should choose another date or see what to do if you cannot meet this requirement.



Step 2: Do your homework.

Make the most of your time and limited advising hours by preparing specific questions and/or proposal drafts for your advising appointment.

Step 3: Fill out the appropriate advising questionnaire below and e-mail it to

NOTE: Appointments with Fellowship Programs advisers may only be made to discuss fellowships for which you must apply through the Fellowship Programs office, with the exception of UK fellowships (e.g., Gates). Not sure? Check out our list of fellowships by class year.


Step 4: Call 203-432-8685 to schedule time with an adviser.

Skype and phone appointments are available if you're not in New Haven. Be sure to send in your résumé and any drafts you hope to discuss at least 48 hours before your appointment time.

While you wait: Continue shaping your plans by taking advantage of our online resources and having discussions with your mentors. You and your plans are not "on pause" while you wait to speak with an adviser!

Applying for a fellowship that is NOT administered by Fellowship Programs?

  • Please contact the relevant administering office at Yale with any questions you may have (most Student Grants Database entries have contact information). For fellowships requiring direct application, not through Yale, look carefully at the official website first; if you still have questions, the Fellowships team will try to help if we can.
  • Check out our application advice.
  • Information sessions and workshops hosted by Fellowship Programs will still be helpful as you prepare your applications; we encourage you to attend!
