Letters of Recommendation

The application requires 3 letters of recommendation. 

Set up your online application account to request letters of recommendation. The system will allow you to enter contact information for your recommenders prior to completion of the application.  Start the process as soon as possible to ensure that letters are received by the application deadline.   

Your recommenders should address your past academic and work performance, as well as aptitude for policy analysis studies at the graduate level. Letters from both professors and employers are welcome. Applicants who are college seniors or recent graduates should aim for at least two letters from professors. Applicants with more work experience should, if possible, have at least one letter from a professor.
