I am writing this letter at the request of Mr. Sayed Elyas Kawish and his desire to apply for British Chevening Scholarships for the Construction Management MSc Postgraduate Taught Program. Though many students ask me to make this request on their behalf, I only recommend students whom I feel are well-suited for the program of their choice. Mr. Kawish is one of those students and therefore, I highly recommend that he be given the opportunity to attend this program. As professor of the Civil Engineering Department at Herat University, I work with many students who have substantial knowledge of Construction Management. Mr. Kawish has consistently shown such a strong desire to learn the different management aspects of construction projects that I simply could not turn down his request for a recommendation.
I first met Mr. Kawish in my Construction Management course during the Spring 2011 semester. Compared to the class average of 70, Mr. Kawish earned an 82 in the class. Mr. Kawish was evaluated on midterm test, course project and final exam in which he performed very well. Elyas is an outstanding individual with a strong character. He has the ability to produce impressive results in a wide variety of areas. Elyas is organized, motivated, hard work and has good communication skills. Additionally, he has a very positive attitude and truly embraces learning all there is to know about basket weaving. Though Stu has consistently exceeded in all areas of his coursework, the best example of his intelligence shone through a [paper/presentation/project/etc.] on theories of basket weaving.
The work clearly showed his ability to deliver a clear, concise, and well-thought presentation with a new perspective by demonstrating [embellish here]. In addition to his coursework, Stu also dedicated some of his] time volunteering at [Club or Organization Name]. His position required him to [list of tasks].

Stu has the ability to manage and organize his time and schedule around different activities without having them interfere with his work. school. I believe Stu is destined to be a leader in basket weaving, and therefore is an excellent candidate for your school. I highly recommend that you consider his application, as he will be a great asset to your program. I’m sure you will find him to be a student whose talents will only grow.
