Due to massive demand I decided to add a price to the reference, motivation and cover letters. Now each letter costs $5.
I would like to share two examples of a reference letter.
They are for free, but if you find it useful, you are welcome to purchase Reference Letter To Attend A Conference Type 1 ($5+) and Type 2 ($5+). I just give the option of a small gratitude payment if you think it is deserved.
You might find them useful when you apply to a conference and they want your professor to send a recommendation letter saying why you should attend it and why you should get a student bursary.
If you want to write a recommendation letter yourself (professors just sign them) remember:
- Personalize the letter, don’t just change the name of there person receiving it.
- Describe how your research matches the topics covered.
- Stress how you benefit form the conference and how the conference attendees benefit from you being there.
