Requesting A Letter
Request a letter of recommendation from faculty, staff, administrators or community leaders that are familiar of your accomplishments, aspirations, and academic achievements.
The most formal approach of requesting a letter is by writing an email and attaching a resume along with a personal statement to keep that person up to date on recent accomplishments. Include the website or brief information on the scholarships you are trying to apply for to inform your mentor about the qualifications you wish to highlight. Ask for the letter to be printed or typed on a formal letterhead.
