Drop-In Advising Hours

URAF hosts drop-in advising hours for Harvard College undergraduates from 2:00pm to 4:00pm on these dates throug the end of the fall term: Mon-WED 11/7-9; Mon-Wed 11/14-16; Mon-Tue 11/21-22; Mon-Thur 11/28-12/1. No need to sign-up or let us know ahead of time— you can access drop-in advising via the Zoom link on the URAF website home page or come in-person to our offices at 77 Dunster Street!

Drop-in advising sessions are typically 15 minutes long. They're a great way to ask questions about our programs, discuss your interests and plans, and ask questions about applications.

Other On-Campus Resources

House Fellowship Advisers (HFAs): Each of Harvard's residential houses has at least one dedicated HFA. These advisers should be the primary contacts for applicants throughout the proposal development and application writing process. If you don't know who your HFA is, please consult your Resident Dean. First-year students are welcome and encouraged to meet with a URAF staff member during walk-in hours or by appointment.

URAF Research Ambassadors: URAF Research Ambassadors are peer advisers available to help students—particularly first-year students, first-generation students, or students from underserved backgrounds—explore the wealth of opportunities and resources available to them!  

Concentration Advisors, Instructors, and Mentors: Your own network of concentration advisors, instructors, and mentors is a valuable resource in helping you think the questions animating your research question or fellowship project. If you're looking for research or other opportunities in a particular discipline or area, departmental administrators and faculty may know of relevant opportunities.
