  Letter of Recommendation
Most scholarship providers will request two or three letters of recommendation from individuals that you know, such as a reference. Letters of recommendation allow the scholarship committee to form an idea of who you are as an individual through someone else's opinion. These letters can be extremely important, and they should reveal information about you that is not necessarily mentioned in your application, resume, test scores, etc. A good letter of recommendation can often be persuasive to the scholarship committee, especially if there is a “borderline” decision between you and another applicant.

Letters of recommendation play an especially important role if there is some negative aspect of your application, test scores, etc. For example, consider a student whose financial or family problems had an adverse impact on his/her academic performance during a particular year. The person writing your recommendation letter can offer an explanation that prevents this from being held against you (the applicant).
