Research Consultations with SURF Advisors

After attending a research proposal workshop, you may request a research consultation with SURF Advisor in your field. You may schedule an appointment during their regularly scheduled office hours once you have a full draft of your application and need input about how to revise your essays and application materials. To access the sign-up sheet, please go to the SURF Advisor webpage.

If you have not yet made substantial progress on your application materials, you should first consult with either an OURS Peer Advisor or a UROC Peer Mentor.
