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.

Evaluators should complete the form and submit the confidential recommendation to the External Affairs Office via fax, mail or campus drop-off. All letter(s) of recommendation must be received by the application session deadline.
