At some point in your life, you may need to write a letter of recommendation for a former employee, co-worker, student, or someone else you know well. Writing a letter of recommendation for another person is a big responsibility and should be taken very seriously. Before agreeing to the task, make sure you have a good understanding of what the letter will be used for and who will read it. This makes it easier for you to write for your audience.

How do you write a Recommendation letter for a scholarship?

The content of the letter of recommendation you write will depend on the needs of the person requesting the letter, but there are some common topics that are typically addressed in a letter of recommendation for job applicants and candidates for education programs:

  • Potential (such as leadership potential)
  • Skills / Abilities / Strengths
  • Reliability
  • Consistency
  • Persistence
  • Motivation
  • Character
  • Contribute (to class or community)
  • Performance

If you feel that you cannot convey the necessary information properly because you are busy or not writing well, offer to sign a letter prepared by the person requesting the referral. This is a common practice and often works well for both parties. However, before signing anything written by someone else, make sure the letter honestly reflects your true opinion. Also, keep a copy of the last letter for your records.

To Whom It May Concern, / Dear Mr., Mrs.,
As President of the Centre for Student Leadership at the University, I am extremely pleased to be able to recommend Mr/Miss Name for the Scholarship in Leadership Development. I have only known Name for about two years but have had the opportunity to see her on many occasions, performing with exceptional skill for a person of her age. Organization provides leadership development initiatives to students by means of introducing them to business practices and allowing them to run their own companies for the course of the term.
Name proved herself very capable as a leader through her role as President of the “Globe Trotters” company that was twinned with a student leadership program in Location. This was our first experience with a student company running an international business. She did an outstanding job communicating with her team and providing them with direction on this pilot project. At our annual awards night Name was named salesperson of the year by the {{Name}} Association.
