OUR: Nuts and Bolts of Writing a Letter of Recommendation


Apr. 5, 2023, 2:30pm to 3:45pm

Office/Remote Location

Virtual via Webex


Writing a strong letter of recommendation is an essential part of any successful application. In many cases, it is the letter of recommendation that determines whether an undergraduate student is awarded a particular scholarship, fellowship, or grant. Oftentimes a generic letter of recommendation can actually hurt the student applicant, and thus it is important for the letter writer to tailor each letter of recommendation to the specific student applicant and discuss their academic attributes. This workshop will discuss the components of a strong letter of recommendation.
