The program recognizes that exemplary student scholarship encompasses a depth of knowledge in the discipline, strong skills of inquiry, an understanding of research ethics, and strong skills in writing and presentation.
Q: Can the same faculty member write the letter of endorsement, as well as the letter verifying semesters of research?
A: Yes. We also often find that students have two faculty members verifying the semesters of research. One faculty member per semester.
Q: Can the letter indicating the supervised research be the same letter as the endorsement letter?
A: Yes, but it is imperative that both the length and nature of the research is described in addition to the endorsement components of the letter.
