Sub : Recommendation letter for Jenny Lerner

Dear Sir,

I, Prof. Blesson Paul, am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Jenny Lerner, an honors undergraduate student in our program. I have known Jenny for more than two years. I started knowing her very well when she was a student in my economic geography course. This summer, I recruited her to work on an NSF-sponsored research project on Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change and for the past six months, we have been developing a laboratory manual for my undergraduate course on the global economy. It is on the basis of this extensive experience that I write a letter of unequivocal support. Jenny is surely a student whom I will recommend for admission in your University on account of the skills and obedience she has displayed.

Jenny is an undergraduate student in the honors program at ABC Institute. I hope that Jenny gets admitted to your program and demonstrates the same skill and abilities that she has shown here. I take her guarantee and recommend her for this program.

With Warm Regards,

Prof. Blesson Paul
