The letter of recommendation can be written by your current/past professors, employer, or personal contact. Once you submit your recommender's information into the system, he/she will receive a confirmation email. Then your recommender will copy and paste your CHCI program specific (Congressional Internship, Graduate & Young Professional, Public Policy Fellowship, or Scholarship) recommendation letter in the space provided below.
The focus should be to include specific ways in which you (the student) stands apart from other individuals/students and your leadership potential.
Note: The letter pasted from your recommender should be the equivalent to a double spaced one page document, maximum two pages. Also, they will not be able to do copy and paste a PDF or an image into the text box below.
I have a paper recommendation letter, can it be accepted?
