The letter refocuses attention away from the applicant's job history and to the benefits the person can bring to the foundation. Dear Mr. Moran: I want to be the one who translates your vision for The Wentworth Foundation into results as your Executive Director. Over the years, I've done just that for not-for-profit entities that range from a large university to a humane society to a minority arts festival to a science museum to a family and career services provider.

This is part of our monthly series ' Mission: Accepted ,' in partnership with Minds Matter , which chronicles the lives of four students as they apply for college in their senior year. Monday, December 16, was my final round of interviews with Pomona College under the Posse Foundation. However, three days prior to the appointed day, I received mail from the program stating that I was not chosen to be a Posse Scholar. As with many seniors seeing this letter, I felt sad and taken by surprise. Yet, after a couple more readings and gathering my thoughts, I decided to take their decision as a positive result.

Therefore, you need to make it very clear that you understand what the reviewer is looking for, and that you are a qualified match.
The problem is that many students have heard of Posse, but don't actually know what it is. As a Posse student, I've also heard some frustrating assumptions about the Posse Foundation and about Posse scholars on campus. It's time to set the record straight. Students on campus can benefit from the Posse network and from connecting to Posse students through events such as the Posse Plus Retreat, and I would love for the student body to realize those benefits. Equally as important: Posse students shouldn't feel the need to prove themselves to others.
