Letters of Recommendation
Letters of recommendation from your teachers, your counselor, or community members are a very important part of most scholarship applications and some college applications. Attached are some forms to help guide you to getting the best letters possible. Here are some important tips:
1. Give your recommenders as much time as possible to write your letter. A minimum of two weeks is recommended. Remember, your teachers and counselor are busy, too, so you don't want them to rush your letter. Give them time to write the best letter they can on your behalf.
2. Provide your recommenders with information about you to help them with your letter. Give them your personal statement, resume, or other helpful information. Don't assume we know; tell us about yourself!
3. Use the same recommenders for more than one application. The letter writer can change the date and greeting to match a different scholarships.
