The apprentices and students applying for scholarships from the PHCC Educational Foundation must collect letters of recommendation to complete their application. The application form allows applicants to upload a letter of recommendation they already have OR send a request message to a person they would like to write a letter for them.
Read below if you have received a request from an applicant to submit a letter of recommendation.
Note – If you are unwilling to provide a letter of recommendation, please contact the applicant directly so that he/she may select another reference. Your letter will be considered confidential and will be read only by the Review Committee.

Who Can Provide a Letter of Recommendation (L.O.R.)?
– PHCC Members: Your company must be a contractor business member of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors—National Association. Please write the L.O.R. on company letterhead and be sure to sign it. The letter of recommendation cannot be from the scholarship applicant’s parent or guardian. For apprentice applicants, ideally the L.O.R. would be from the applicant’s direct supervisor or the business owner. Members of the PHCC Association Executives Council are also eligible to provide a L.O.R. for an applicant.
– Academic Advisor/Counselor/Instructor: To provide an academic L.O.R., you must be the applicant’s teacher, instructor, principal, guidance counselor, academic advisor, etc. In the case of an apprentice or tech taking online training through the PHCC Academy, the person providing the applicant with their hands-on training can provide this L.O.R.
