Letters of Recommendation

Thank you for supporting students as they apply for U.S. Department of Education Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships.

Submission Instructions for All Applications

  • References should submit a letter of recommendation by emailing the letter to the appropriate FLAS Coordinator. References must submit letters of recommendation through the recommender portal by February 2, 2024 (end of day).

Students are encouraged to speak with references and provide them with materials (e.g. statement of purpose, resume, CV, etc.) well in advance of the reference deadline (February 2, 2024); students are responsible for instructing references to submit letters properly. Contact the appropriate FLAS Coordinator with any issues.

A complete application requires 2 letters of recommendation; failure to submit a letter of recommendation by the deadline will significantly impact the student's application.
