Do you write letters in support of grant applications?

Because the deadline for grant applications often precedes the Weatherhead Center’s application deadline as well as the time when the selection committee evaluates the applications, we write conditional letters in support of grant applications. That is, we write a letter of invitation to the program and state that the offer depends on getting funding and earning acceptance into the Weatherhead Scholars Program. The grant applicant must apply separately to the Weatherhead Scholars Program.
