P-250 Recommendation Form
A student has selected you to provide a reference statement in support their application for the Project 250 Award. These awards are made possible by Project 250, a student program that raised more than $250,000 in endowed funds during the 1971 academic year in honor of former Albion President Bernard T. Lomas. The $2,000 annual awards are available to Albion College students who will be sophomores, juniors or seniors during the next academic year.
The purpose of the Project 250 Award is to encourage students to contribute to significant improvements of self, campus, and community, both in and out of the classroom. Award recipients will be determined;
- Based on the applicant’s broad range of activities and how these activities contribute to self, campus and community without regard to financial need;
- On the basis of the applicant’s leadership contributions as measured by the quality of the applicant’s involvement with activities and organizations; and
- On the contribution to the applicant’s personal goals in higher education.
The reference statement you provide will be used by the Project 250 Selection Committee to gain further insight into the candidate’s scholarship and leadership experiences relating to the campus and the surrounding communities. Comments regarding the candidate’s unique or special contribution as measured by the quality of involvement in activities and organizations that have improved or eventually will improve the College community will be especially helpful in the selection process.
We understand that P250 references are busy individuals. We certainly don't want providing a referece statment to be a large task. While your recommendation may be as short or as long as you would like, typical reference statements are between 3-6 sentences. You may provide a formal letter of recommendation, but it is not necessary for this purpose.
The reference statement will only be seen by the Project 250 Selection Committee. Therefore, it is not considered part of the student’s official College record and will be held in confidence. Please use the form below to complete the recommendation for the student who has forwarded you this web address.
