Letter of Recommendation
If applicable, scholarship applicants will select an evaluator(s) to support their Mercy College scholarship application. An evaluator may only complete one Letter of Recommendation per student. For example, if a student is applying for two scholarships, they must request a letter of recommendation from two unique evaluators.
An automatic email from the Advancement Office will be sent to the scholarship applicant after submission. Students are instructed to forward the email to an evaluator to request recommendation to support their application. The email contains the Letter of Recommendation fillable form and instructions. Evaluators may also download the form found under Quick Info (right-hand column).
Evaluators will complete the form and submit the confidential recommendation to the Advancement Office via fax, mail or campus drop-off. All letter(s) of recommendation must be received by the application session deadline.
