Tips on Applying for Scholarships


Letters of Recommendation

Students may need letters of recommendations for college applications, job applications, scholarships and more.  Most organizations will specify who they need a letter from but typically teachers and counselors are they main point of contact for recommendations.



  • Students should ask their teacher and/or counselor at least 10 business days prior to the deadline to allow enough time to write the letter
  • Students should provide a resume or a completed student profile to the counselor and/or teacher to help them write the letter
  • Make sure to also provide your recommender with any detailed information that the college, scholarship organization or other entity has provided with guidelines for writing and submitting the letter of recommendation
