Recommendation Letter

The purposes of the Girls of Promise® student application process is three-fold: to allow the committee to pick the most excited and dedicated students, to give students experience polishing a competitive application, and to encourage students to learn how to request “glowing” letters of recommendation.

Each student application must include a completed Teacher Recommendation Form to be considered. The Teacher Recommendation Form must be completed by:

  • An educator who teaches science, technology, arts, or math OR
    • An supervisor of an extracurricular activity related to science, technology, arts, or math (ex. Coding Club supervisor, Robotics Team Instructor, etc…)
    • A counselor at the school where the student applicant attends.

The strength of teacher recommendations informs our acceptance process. Completed Teacher Recommendation Forms must be submitted by students through their online application.

All student applications completed by January 14, 2020 are reviewed by the Girls of Promise® committee.
