Dear Recommender,

Please upload your letter of recommendation below.  The letter of recommendation is a critical part of a student’s application.  Your candid remarks will be of great help to the funding committees in evaluating applicants.  Your letter of recommendation should be on official letterhead, dated and signed.

Please comment on your relationship to this student; the contributions made by this student to your class or organization; the leadership potential and commitment to a project(s) this student has shown; character and maturity; and most importantly how you think this student will benefit from funding and/or work exemption.

If a student’s letter of recommendation has not been received by the application deadline, their application will be considered incomplete.  Students with incomplete applications will be disqualified from consideration for funding.  Thank you for your cooperation!


(ex. abc123 – your intern will need to provide their UNI to you)
