Article Body:
One of the requirements when you apply for scholarship is the letter for
recommendation. Here, the person you have asked to write this should
support you as you keep your hopes to win the scholarship.

This is why, making sure that you approach the right person would
definitely increase your chances in making it towards the free education
you’ve always wanted.

When you choose the person to write the letter of recommendation for you,
it does not necessarily mean that you approach the person whom you know
for a long time. It does not necessarily mean that the person knows you
very well. Since the aim of the letter is to give an affirmation to you
as an applicant for scholarship, the person you should choose should be
the one who can give genuine assessment of your skills and capacity.

He or she may not be a prolific letter writer. He or she may not have the
greatest title before his name. He or she should know how to put his or
her thoughts into paper. Choosing the person to write your recommendation
letter should also have the capacity to produce the letter on time since
most scholarship applications have definite timeframe in filing every
requirement.

Once you have determined who will write your letter of recommendation,
approaching him or her it your next task. Keep in mind that you should
inform that person why he or she is the one you have selected. Explain to
the person the reason and purpose of writing a recommendation letter.
Also remember that a good approach will lead to better result and better
letter content. The key is: be polite.
Keep in mind that letter of recommendation is a job that should work
perfectly so your involvement is necessary. This means that once you have
asked someone to write a letter of recommendation, you don’t leave him or
her with the question, “What am I going to write about him?”

Make sure you provide him or her the details about you. List some your
extra-curricular activities you think would be a great plus for you. Give
the person every detail he or she has to know about you. And provide the
person with the copy of your essay so that he or she would have an idea
of the type of approach you make. On his or her part, knowing all these
will make it much easier for him (her) to finish the letter early.
