Personal Rsum For College And Scholarship Recommendations

Use the sample below to create a personal résumé for college and scholarship recommendations early in the fall of your twelfth grade year. The résumé should be a chronological summation of your academic background, your curricular and extracurricular activities, and your personal accomplishments. These can be arranged to emphasize what you want the reader to see first. In fact, you could have different résumés for different purposes—the résumé you use for a college application recommendation might look different than the résumé you use for a music scholarship recommendation where you need to highlight your musical activities. Your résumé will help the teachers and/or the community members you ask for letters of recommendation to give a more well-rounded view of you.

Give your résumé; any information about requirements for the recommendation; any forms you need to have filled out; and pre-addressed, stamped envelopes to the people who are writing the recommendations for you. When your recommendations are completed, write thank you notes to the people who have made these efforts for you.
