Letters of Recommendation - Smart Strategic Thinking

February 1

In this workshop, learn how to effectively ask your teachers and mentors for the letters of recommendation that your applications require to be successful! Experienced advisors from career development, fellowships, and pre-health programs will share proactive strategies for helping you to help your teachers and mentors write letters that are tailored to you and the particular opportunities that you are pursuing. Open to all years.


Information Session on the McKinley Fellowships with Nessy Tania

February 8

If you are a sophomore or a junior who loves research, this is the session for you. This lunchbag explains the McKinley Pre-Honors and Honors Fellowships, who is eligible to apply (heads up: it’s for students with high financial need), how to apply, and the benefits of the fellowship.
If you would rather do research than work-study, you may want to come and learn what's possible in your junior or senior year.
