For the Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service, who should write my recommendation and how long should it be? What do you look for in a recommendation letter?
Your current direct supervisor must write your recommendation. Recommendations from professors, previous supervisors or someone in a role other than that of your direct supervisor are not accepted. We understand that you may be new to a position and we take that into consideration when reading your recommendation.
Recommendation letters need not exceed one page. We look for examples of commitment and enthusiasm in your work, as well as your supervisor's recognition that you will be involved in a robust fellowship program that will require their commitment to ensure that you can attend all sessions on time and participate fully.
