Consult the Expert Series


The "Consult the Experts" Series offers support to scholars who are writing research proposals for competition. Scholarship and fellowship applicants are required to write a detailed description of their proposed research project for the period during which they would hold the award. A well-structured and well-written proposal is critical to the success of the application. Applicants are encouraged to bring a one-page draft of their research proposal with them to have it read and critiqued by an available expert from a similar research area. Our contingent of volunteer experts is made up of senior award-winning doctoral students, postdoctoral scholars, research officers and faculty members.

There will be a total of 10 3-hour sessions . There is no registration required and scholars may attend any session that best fits their schedule. Return visits are encouraged. Consultations with a volunteer expert will be limited to 20 minutes each and will take place on a 'first come, first served' basis. Wait times will vary. Session facilitators will ensure the timely flow of traffic throughout each session.

The sessions will be held on the 3rd floor of Stevenson Hall , inside the main entrance and up the stairs, on the following dates:
