New Video Walks Referees Through Submission of Reference Letters in eRA Commons


Are you preparing fellowship or career development grant applications? Point your referees (the person providing the letter) to a new video tutorial that guides them through the process of submitting reference letters for applicants of fellowship and career development funding opportunities. The video reflects the new, cleaner look of the Submit Reference Letter screen, designed to improve the user experience.

As always, referees who are asked to submit a reference letter do not need an eRA Commons account, nor do they have to log into eRA Commons.  On the eRA Commons home screen, you will find the Submit a Reference Letter link which takes you to the new screen.
