Recommendations

Instructions for Recommendations

Applicants must submit THREE letters of recommendation, which must be sent electronically directly from the recommenders. You will not be able to read the letters. A confirmation email will be sent to you after your three letters are submitted, and the authenticity of your recommendation letters may be verified later.

The letters should reveal information about you that is not in your application. It is best to have recommendations from people who know you well; a recommendation from a prominent individual is not helpful if he or she does not personally know you. It is suggested that one recommendation be from someone who can speak to your academic or professional competence and another be from someone with knowledge of your extracurricular, community, or civic activities. The third is entirely up to you.

Letters should not exceed the equivalent of one single-spaced typed page and must be sent from the recommenders directly to:
letters.fellows@tn.gov with the subject line of "Recommendation for [Your Name Here]."

You are responsible for communicating these instructions to your three recommenders and ensuring that letters are submitted by the application deadline, October 30th.
