Letters of Recommendation

Faculty and others are directed to this page as part of the application process to submit letters of recommendation supporting our students who apply for a Phi Beta Kappa Scholarship from the WSU Gamma chapter. The Scholarship Committee would like to thank these individuals in advance for writing a recommendation for this WSU student. Letters of Recommendation for the 2021-2022 academic year awards are due by April 1, 2021.

The Importance of Recommendations

Phi Beta Kappa recognizes and fosters excellence in liberal learning at the undergraduate level. Each applicant requires three (3) supporting statements from members of the faculty or others who can speak to their accomplishments. We value recommendations from those who know of the student’s personal character, intellectual range and depth, and other individual strengths. We seek observations that illuminate and go beyond what is shown on the Registrar’s transcript.

The Content of Your Letter

In your statement, please indicate the basis of your knowledge and how you would rank this student among students with whom you have experience. Your statement will not be shown to the applicant. The student’s complete Application Packet will be evaluated by members of the Gamma Chapter’s Phi Beta Kappa Scholarship Committee.

Submission Deadline

Please return your recommendation by Thursday, April 1, 2021. Note: We cannot consider applications complete until all recommendations are received.
