Guidelines for Support Letter
A letter of support for your project must be written by a U-M faculty member, instructor, or research supervisor who is familiar with your work.
After you submit your application, the person you’ve identified as your letter writer will receive a generated email from Submittable that includes a link to upload their letter.
We’ll want to know:
- How their students typically conduct library research, and to what extent you’ve shown mastery of these skills
- The relevance of your project to course goals
- Whether the sources you used were appropriate for the scope of the argument and its method
- Whether the methods of research and argumentation were consistent with disciplinary standards
The awards committee must receive these letters of support in Submittable by the end of the winter term.
