Letters of Recommendation FAQs

Thank you for your interest in the “Scholarships for Success” Program. The application period for 2020 has ended. Our next application period will be February 2021. 

IMPORTANT UPDATE!
Due to the Coronavirus crisis, we will only require ONE Letter of Recommendation. What does this mean? It means, if you’ve submitted two letter of recommendation requests and have received one, you have fulfilled that requirement.  

Waiting on a letter of recommendation to complete your “Scholarships for Success” application? Below are frequently asked questions on how to check status, send reminders, and more.

How will I know when my recommender has submitted their letter of recommendation?

You can check the status of your letters of recommendation under the Letters of Recommendation section of your scholarship application.
