Writing Effective Reference Letters for Student Fellowships

Education Building : 3700 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1Y2

The goal of this workshop is to inform about and raise awareness of best practices in writing reference letters.

Description:
Professors are often asked by students to write reference letters for funding opportunities. Reference letters are critical to a fellowship or scholarship application, yet they are probably the most overlooked part of the application process. Often many of the applicants being considered for a competitive scholarship program are first class, and reference letters are influential in distinguishing an individual from a pack of outstanding applicants by highlighting unique strengths. This interactive session is designed to help you answer questions such as:

·      What are the key elements of a “good” reference letter and what pitfalls should be avoided?

·      Are you obliged to write a reference letter if asked by a student?

·      How much lead time should you expect in order to write a reference letter?

·      What information should be provided by the student?
