Contact Our Office

PLEASE NOTE: During our busy season from June through late October, when we are working with a large number of applicants facing fall deadlines, we cannot offer general advising appointments and have only limited availability for appointments about specific awards with upcoming deadlines in the fall of 2023. If you are interested in awards with deadlines later than this coming October, please contact us closer to the deadline and make use of the resources offered by the fellowship organization in the meantime to start thinking about your application.

Looking to get in contact with a fellowships advisor in our office?


Have a quick question, a general inquiry, or not sure what you need? Send us an email anytime at

We aim to answer all emails with 24-48 hours, but please note that our response time outside of regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm ET) and on holidays may be slower.

Advising Appointments on Zoom

*Please see note at the top of the page about our limited availability in summer and early fall*

If you know the name of the staff member you would like to speak with, please visit our Scholars and Fellows Staff Contact page on Calendly and choose that advisor’s calendar to find an appointment time for a Zoom video call.

If you would like to speak with someone about a particular award (or awards) that we work on, but aren’t sure with whom, please use our Choose an NFP Advisor form on Calendly to find the right advisor for a given fellowship. If you are interested in more than one award, please select whichever is most of interest on the form.

If you do not know of any specific awards you are interested in yet, please spend some time before scheduling a meeting with us doing some research to determine which awards may be of interest and confirming that they are within our remit (please see our awards directory). We provide many resources for fellowship searching on this website to help you narrow the field. We can’t advise you on what fellowships you should apply for on the spot and we can’t help with awards that we aren’t familiar with.

In-Person Appointments

While Calendly appointments are automatically scheduled as Zoom video calls, you are welcome to request an in-person appointment instead. Please just email whoever you are meeting after you schedule your Calendly appointment to let them know you would rather meet in person.

Meetings taking place in person will be at our Homewood campus office in the Center for Student Success, 3003 N Charles St., Homewood Apartments, Suite 193.

PLEASE NOTE: During the summer, some of our busiest months, all appointments will be on Zoom.

Wondering About Office Hours?

Our staff strive to be available as often as possible during weekday business hours through individual advising appointments. As a result, we are not currently holding regularly scheduled office hours.
