Two references are required. One must come from professors with whom you have studied at Penn, and it is preferred that the Penn professor is from your major department. Please note that references’ contact details are a compulsory field on the application form. Candidates are responsible for ensuring that their chosen references receive and submit the required reference form by the deadline. Missing references will NOT be chased by the Thouron Award administration. Applicants will be at a disadvantage if their application is not accompanied by the required references
