RECOMMENDATION LETTERS

  • The second recommendation must be from the applicant’s supervisor for a job, internship, or volunteer activity; the applicant’s athletic coach; the academic adviser of an extracurricular activity in which the applicant participates; or the instructor from an outside class or course the applicant has taken.
  • If a person writing a recommendation prefers to send the recommendation directly to NYWICI, they can send it to info@nywici.org and we will attach it to the student’s file.

INTERNSHIP ELIGIBILITY

Recipients who apply for sponsored scholarships that have mandatory internships not only MUST be available to complete the internships but also MUST notify us if their ability to do so changes at any point in the scholarship process. A recipient who fails to do so will be disqualified from receiving any scholarship from us and will not receive a free year’s membership.

Past scholarship winners who are reapplying must be NYWICI members in good standing (i.e., dues for the current year paid in full, if applicable). NOTE: No individual can receive the same named scholarship twice or more than two scholarships in total through NYWICI.
