Hoover Institution Summer Policy Boot Camp Letter of Recommendation Submission


Thank you for taking the time to recommend a candidate for Hoover's Summer Policy Boot Camp.

The Hoover Institutions Summer Policy Boot Camp (HISPBC) is an intensive, one week residential immersion program in the essentials of today’s national and international United States policy. The program is intended to instruct college students and recent graduates on the economic, political, and social aspects of United States public policy. The goal is to teach students how to think critically about public policy formulation and its results.

We ask recommenders to complete the following form, with all required fields marked by a red asterisk. Please note that recommendations for applications to the Summer Policy Boot Camp do not require a supplemental letter. However, if you feel your recommendation is best served with the addition of a letter, you may attach one at the bottom of this form.
