FACULTY WRITING LETTERS OF REFERENCE: Please upload your letter here by February 15. Be sure to include the candidate’s full name at the top of your letter. Describe why your student is a good candidate for NextGenPop, how the program would benefit your student, and how you plan to support their success as their “home mentor.” The commitment of the home mentor is to provide general support and guidance to the NextGenPop fellow, which might include debriefing after the summer experience, checking in on progress in the remote components of the program, and providing a point of contact for local resources.

If you have any problems with the application, e-mail us.
