Information on letters of recommendation

Letters of recommendation in the Hezekiah Wardwell Fellowship Programme

To be able to apply for a Hezekiah WardweIl Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, interested applicants must submit references as part of their application. If you would like to provide a letter of recommendation in support of an application for this fellowship, please follow the instructions below.

Please refer to our website or the Hezekiah WardweIl Fellowship programme information to find out exactly what is required of applicants.

How to proceed

Your assessment of the applicant is a major contribution to the review process.

Please write your statement using the list of questions for letters of recommendation (PDF, in German | in Spanish) and answer all the questions in the given order where possible.

Upload the completed document to a secure area associated with the application; the applicant will send you the corresponding link to this area by email. Your letter of reference will, of course, be treated as confidential.

Please note

Without your expert review, the application is incomplete and cannot be submitted. We therefore recommend that you upload your review as soon as possible after being notified by the applicant. The closing date for applications is 10 January of each year.
