Student Advising: RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

Before you set up an advising appointment with CCRF Staff, please first do the following:

  1. Thoroughly review all information on the website about the opportunities you are interested in.

  2. Based upon which opportunities you are interested in, please first attend a relevant information session listed here: http://ccrf.uchicago.edu/information-sessions-workshops-and-series.

  3. Set up an appointment after you have carefully reviewed the information online and/or attended a relevant CCRF information session. Come prepared to your advising appointment with questions about a fellowship and/or undergraduate research; be prepared to speak about why said opportunities are of interest to you and fit your experience, ambitions, and goals. 

  4. Do not set up an appointment you do not intend to keep. This is not only disrespectful, it prevents other students requiring assistance from securing advising appointments.

PLEASE NOTE: CCRF staff do not advise on the following: BA theses; graduate school applications, including MDs or JDs; course-requirements or academic advising; or career counseling. Also note, CCRF staff will not respond to emails with CVs attached that simply ask for counsel on "what fellowships I might be eligible for" or what research and funding opportunities are available. It is your responsibility to perform the requisite due-diligence and make a good-faith effort indentifying opportunities that may be a good fit for you. 


For Faculty and Research Mentors:                                                                                                                                                         

 

All faculty and research mentors who seek support in creating new undergraduate research opportunities or for additional support of existing programs, please contact Nichole Fazio directly by email or phone.
