Information for letters of recommendation

If you are providing a letter of recommendation for an applicant for an International Climate Protection Fellowship, we would be grateful if you would make use of the list of questions for letters of recommendation. Please answer all the questions so that we can do full justice to the applicant in the selection procedure.

Your letter of recommendation will be treated confidentially during the whole selection procedure.
