This collection of handouts helps students understand the graduate school application process and provides tips and strategies related to finding suitable programs and completing successful applications.

Getting Strong Letters of Recommendation Handout:

We often get questions from students who are nervous about approaching recommenders for letters.  This handout helps prepare undergraduate students to get strong letters for their graduate application packages.

Enhancing your Fellowship Application Handout:
