Academic Reference

Please list an academic reference* that we are able to contact regarding your application. This can be a professor or a career center staff member you have worked with.

*Academic Reference: Below is a sample email that you can send to your professor if you would like to ask them to be your reference:

Dear Professor,

I hope you are having a great week. I am writing to ask if I could list you as an academic reference for a scholarship I am applying for. The NRF Foundation is offering the unique opportunity for students in my major to apply to receive a free trip to New York City through the Ray Greenly Scholarship to attend the NRF Foundation Student Program 2020. Attending this event will introduce me to the numerous career opportunities in retail available to me because of my major and allow me to network with students, recruiters and industry executives from the biggest players in the industry.

If you are listed as my reference, the NRF Foundation may contact you via email regarding my application and academic performance. A letter of recommendation is not needed. Please let me know if I may list you, and if you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks,
Your name
