Thank you for helping this student apply to the Phillips Scholarship, which offers renewable, four-year college scholarships to students with financial need who display academic achievement, a commitment to serving others, a strong work ethic, leadership qualities, and exhibit grit when faced with hardship. The deadline for this form is May 4, 2020.

This form is for an adult who knows the student well (but not a relative), such as a teacher, community service advisor, religious leader, coach or employer. We are particularly interested in a student's concern for others and, if applicable, any special circumstances or challenges s/he has met. You may answer the questions below and/or address these questions in a letter of recommendation. If you choose to write a letter, please include these topics, and/or comment briefly in the spaces provided below.
