[Subject: Normally bold, summarizes the intention of the letter] -Optional-


Presently, I am working on my applications to different graduate schools, and I find it essential to look for individuals who can give letters of recommendation for me. I have many mentors but you are the one who helped me the most in my intellectual advancement, and you have an excellent perspective when it comes to my capabilities. As such, I am asking you to support me in my dream to pursue higher education.

I am aware that you are busy with your many commitments and responsibilities, but I hope you will spare me some of your precious time to write a letter of recommendation. After all, the deadline is still two months away. I have also attached the recommendation forms of each university wherein I am hoping to apply. If you are not able to grant my request for any reason at all, I will understand. Your contributions to my education are already abundant, and I am truly grateful.
