B 13. How should/can I provide my "Academic Letters of Recommendation"?

If you are interested in applying for an Abbe School of Photonics scholarship, please upload two academic letters of recommendation from your current or former professors. Please make sure that they contain your professors' signature, a date, and the official headline or stamp of your university.

If you are unable to upload these documents yourself, you have the possibility to provide us with your professors’ contact information in the Application Assistant. After your application is submitted, your professors will receive a notification from our system to submit the letter themselves.

We also have a template that your professors may use here. The template is, however, not mandatory.

You will not be informed of the arrival of the letters. We ask, that you make sure to remind your referees in case they are late in submitting them. We expect the letters to be submitted no later than two weeks after the deadline.
