Scholarly discernment meeting (60 minutes)

We will discuss your values, commitments, and your scholarly trajectory. This may lead into a discussion of getting started in research and general fellowships information. We can also follow up on a previous discernment meeting. If you have a question about a specific research idea, including a request for feedback on a grant proposal, please schedule a meeting in the following section, "Research idea discussion and proposal feedback." To schedule a 60-minute meeting, you might need to make two 30-minute meetings back-to-back.
