Two letters of recommendation are required. One letter must come from someone who has agreed to be your mentor for your project. Although all Prize winners are expected to show independence in carrying out their projects, the mentor should be someone who can advise you as you work on your project. Your mentor may be a faculty member, but need not be. At least one of your required letters must come from someone who taught you at Berkeley.
In addition, you may supply up to three additional letters of support from people or organizations whose cooperation will contribute to your project’s success, or from someone who can comment directly on the significance of your project.
Letters can be submitted online (link pending), or emailed directly to email@example.com by March 1, 2021.
