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 current or former professors. Please make sure that your professors signed your letters of recommendation and that they contain a date and an official headline from the university or a stamp.

If you are unable to upload these documents, you have the possibility to provide contact information for each professor in the Application Assistant. After submission of your application, 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 required.

We will not inform you when the recommendation letters are sent, but we will ask you for support in reminding your referees in case they are late in submitting the letters. We are expecting the letters to be sent two weeks behind the deadline latest.
