  1. Hi,

    Due to confidentiality policies, the professors that are writing my letter of recommendations for the 2019 FAAMA scholarship were wondering if they could email their recommendations separate from the rest of my application? In the directions, it states that the entire package must include these letters, with everything sent in one email. However, would it be okay to send the letter separately?

    Thank you
