Each candidate must submit two letters of reference. Each focus area has an email address to which these letters must be sent:
You must provide your two referees the email address for the program to which you are applying, and the reference letters must be emailed to MIT Portugal by each referee before the applications' deadline. (The reference letter template for the referees is available.) The letters should be printed on official stationery of the institution at which the referee works, and must include a URL for the institution so the affiliation can be confirmed. The letters must be signed by the referee and then attached to an email sent to one of the email addresses listed above. It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that MIT Portugal receives both letters before the applications' deadline.
