Writing Effective Reference Letters for Student Fellowships

Thu, 2014-08-28 10:00 - 12:00
McLennan Library Building : Room: MS-74, 3459 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C9

Professors are often asked by students to write reference letters for funding opportunities. This interactive session is designed to help you answer questions such as:

  • Are you obliged to write a reference letter if asked by a student and how might you respond if you are not supportive?
  • How much lead time should you expect in order to write a reference letter?
  • What information should be provided by the student?

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