Advising Appointments

Spring 2020 Advising Hours

The Big Ideas team loves to talk to students about their project ideas, answer questions about the contest, and help teams develop effective proposals. To learn more about our advisors and their areas of specialization, visit our Team Page.

Alternatively, prospective Big Ideas applicants can make an appointment for advising in-person (120B Blum Hall, UC Berkeley), or via Skype, Google Hangouts or phone. If you are scheduling remote advising, make sure to list the contact information you’d like to use in the appointment description. We strongly recommend you sign up in advance to guarantee time with your advisor of choice advisor. Advising hours can be very busy, so drop-ins are not guaranteed 

If you can’t make it to these advising appointment times and would like to reserve a time, please email us at and we’ll schedule another time to meet with you!
