Letter of Recommendation

Season: 2018

You must submit two letters of recommendation through the online application.

  • Ideally, one letter should come from a current supervisor or manager.
  • The second should come from someone who can evaluate your professional performance and your managerial/leadership potential (e.g., former supervisor, previous employer, client).
  • If you are unable to ask a current supervisor or manager for a letter of recommendation, you should include a brief explanation in the “Additional Information” section of the application.

The application is not considered complete until we have received both recommendations. Additional letters of support are neither required nor encouraged.
