This (usually optional) letter may be used to convey information that is pertinent to the review of the proposal. Make sure you identify your name, the University of Michigan, project title, RFP or and specific funding mechanism if any. Depending on sponsor’s regulations, this letter may be used to request a reviewer or a specific study section with special expertise in your field, or to identify conflicts with potential reviewers. Sometimes this letter is used to explain special circumstances, ., budget outside of limits, missed deadline, unique subawards, request to send in delayed preliminary data results before review date. State if you have attached any special approval documentation pertaining to any of the above.
According to a study conducted by Georgetown University, approximately 40 percent of undergraduate students work at least 30 hours each week. If you need to secure a part-time job to pay for your education, or simply want to make some spending money, you’ll typically need to write a cover letter.
Just because the position is part-time doesn’t mean you should spend less time writing your cover letter. You need to put the same time and effort into your cover letter as you would when applying for an internship or full-time position.
