Students Seeking Scholarship Letters of Recommendation

Salt Lake Community College is already gathering SLCC scholarship applications for the 2018-19 school year. The deadline for incoming freshmen is Feb. 1, while the deadline for continuing students is March 1. See our website for more details:

As part of the scholarship application process, students are required to request a letter of recommendation from someone. Often, students will reach out to SLCC faculty and staff to support them in this endeavor.

Due to the implementation of our new online scholarship application software, all requests and submissions must be done online. No traditional letters of recommendation will be accepted. If you receive an email asking you to provide a recommendation, please respond immediately! Your recommendation could be the difference between a student receiving a scholarship or not.

Follow the steps below to submit your recommendation:

1. If a student requests you as a recommender, you will receive an email from the SLCC Scholarship team ( with the subject line, “Request from [Student’s Name].”

2. In the email, there will be a hyperlink that says, “Respond to this request here.” Click on that link to complete your review. If the link will not work, there will be a URL at the bottom of the email that you can copy and paste into your browser.

3. Once on the site, you will be asked to rate the student in five areas on a scale from 0-5. Please answer honestly.

4. You will also be asked to provide any specific examples of the candidate’s abilities and academic potential. These comments are very helpful to reviewers.

5. Click “Submit.”

Any questions you may have can be directed to or to Alisa Woodbrey, assistant director of scholarships at ext. 4123.
