Recommendation Letters

You can use the same recommendation letters that you used to apply to the Washington DC Program.

If an application requires more letters of recommendation than you used to apply to the program, ask a faculty member or supervisor to write you an additional letter as soon as possible.

  • Try to ask at least three weeks in advance.
  • Provide a “resource packet” to your recommender in order to help them write their letter. This should include the position description, your cover letter, and your resume. 
  • Inform your recommender of any skills or qualities you want them to highlight in their letter.
