To The Fulbright Commission.

I am writing with great pleasure to recommend Mr. Julian Gonzalez for the application to the Fulbright Commission Scholarship Program.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Julian Gonzalez during the last six years. I worked closely with him on his Thesis Project in his last undergraduate year. During that time he demonstrated a strong commitment to the enhancement of his software development skills and the use of technologies for education and the research fields.

I came to know him in the second academic period of 2005 while teaching the Electromagnetisms class. His desire for learning and passion for the physics called my attention and I invited him to join our weekly Astronomy seminar in the Halley Center Group where he participated energetically as part of his extracurricular activities complemented with his participation in the taekwondo team. He first joined our Astronomy meetings as an attendee and afterwards as a speaker. Soon his desire for a challenging opportunity to help to improve the learning experience of other students in our department applying computer programs, lead me to assign him the development of a special project that would give to postgraduate students the tool necessary to conduct measurements in a nanometric scale in 3D.

Julian shown a high performance in the development of this project, participated actively, suggested changes that improved the initial requirements and exhibited highly valuable characteristics as independence, drive and leadership.

The product he and his partner developed now is a valuable tool in our laboratory and, as his Thesis, it got a perfect score of 5.0.

Julian is a hard worker with a good attitude and gentle, earnest spirit. He is always eager to learn and teach. Our society needs more people like Julian, those who are committed to being competent and caring, and whose studies will make a difference in the future. I recommend him highly.

Sincerely,

I read through the essay looking for grammatical or structural errors and could find none. I found a few minor fixes, but this is excellent!

Julian is a hard worker ing, committed and with a good attitude and gentle, earnest spirit. He is always eager to learn and teachshare his knowledge with others . Our society needs more people like Julian, those who are committed to being competent and caringhelpful to our people . and whose studies will make a difference in the future.

Letter of recommendation of a professor to apply to Fulbright Colombia

Hi, I am a software developer (engineer) who wants to apply for a master's program in Education (Learning Design and Technology program) through a Fulbright scholarship.

I want to develop an E-learning web application in my country and want to get the knowledge needed to construct middle-educational oriented web applications in this program.

I asked a former professor to write my letter of recommendation and this is the letter he wrote. He is also a computer scientist and a professor.

Please take a look of this and tell me if you find a way to improve it.

======================================================

To the Fulbright Commission

This letter of recommendation offers my complete support of Julian Gonzalez as he applies for a Fulbright Scholarship. I have known Julian for five years now, since he completed my course in Computer Programming III (Web Development). As the best student in this course, Julian was markedly the most interested in get real with web development, always looking for a good idea for a web application he could develop. Although at that time he had not all the knowledge needed to do so.

Since Julian took the class he has kept in touch with me, in particular by seeking my advice on software architecture for web applications. Based on these interactions, over the last years I have come to see Julian as a bright, personable, energetic, and mature person with concrete goals in his career.

As a computer scientist and a professor of the Industrial University of Santander I am honored to see that Julian has become an entrepreneur, a leader that knows the only way to change things is taking part of the change, and that through his startup he wants to develop that educational project which I am sure will transform the secondary education of our country to a new more comprehensive educational model that will spread high quality knowledge at low cost, educating youth among other important things to be a responsible user or technology with competences for adapting to a changing world.

I have to say that Julian breaks the "Engineer" stereotype with his personal characteristics. He is active, eloquent, and humorous. As I got to know Julian over the years I have become impressed by the wide range of his abilities, he really enjoy continuous self-learning, lately he has shown himself very enthusiastic about some courses imparted by Top Universities in the US, offered in the Coursera and Udemy projects where he has completed a few of them. He also learned English by himself only using the internet and now he has begun with German.

As an engineer he is even more remarkable. One of his strengths is the devotement that he allots to an activity, successfully leading it to an end, no matter what obstacle he meets, sometimes trying to overcome himself .

It is for these reasons that I offer high recommendations for Julian without reservation. His drive and abilities guarantee the success as a graduate student. If you have any questions regarding this recommendation, please do not hesitate to contact me.

sincerely,
