Sydney’s Advice

Additional documents are sometimes required to apply to scholarships, such as reference letters. However, the time it takes to hear back from reference letter requests is often out of your control. To avoid anxiety around time management, Sydney suggests sending requests for reference letters before you even get started on your essay! This way, the referent will have lots of time to write an excellent letter for your recommendation. If you’d like more tips on writing reference letters, read our blog!
