HONORS PROGRAM Request for Letter of Recommendation Letters of recommendation are an important part of any job, scholarship, or graduate school application. Those whom you ask to write your letters want to be able to write one that will give you the best chance at achieving your goals, so be sure to ask if he or she can write you a strong letter of recommendation early in the process. To ensure that the person who writes a recommendation for you has sufficient information to do so, the Honors Program asks that you include with this application a resumĂŠ which details any and all relevant information (e.g. honors/awards, research interests, publications, leadership positions, group participation, etc.) and application deadlines. This all must be given three to four weeks prior to the recommendation due date. Where appropriate, you should also provide addressed envelopes with proper postage attached. To ensure your privacy, please submit all materials in an envelope.
