Virtual Applications Sessions are a Zoom walk-through of the application with program staff. In these one-hour sessions, you will learn what we are looking for in the applications we receive and be able to ask questions. We limit these sessions to 30 people so interested applicants need to reserve their spot by emailing

Drop in Virtual Office Hours are a first-come, first-served opportunity to ask questions directly to program staff outside of a group setting. The Zoom link is in the schedule below.
