One-on-one advising appointments with Fellowship Programs advisers are available throughout the calendar year. They are 30 minutes in length and take place during office hours. Appointments can take place in person, via telephone or via Skype.

Drop-In Hours (when classes are in session)

Drop-in hours are held during the semester every Friday from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. when class is in session. The entire fellowships team is on hand to answer quick questions. No appointment is necessary.

Check our calendar of events for details about group advising, workshops, and up-coming application deadlines.

Tip: A note on reviewing Fellowship Proposal Drafts: Please first take a look at these helpful suggestions and then consult with writing tutors at the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning and your faculty adviser. CIPE fellowship advisers are available to discuss your proposal for CIPE administered fellowships during appointments which take place one or more weeks prior to application deadlines.
