Though the entire application isn't due until 5 p.m. on March 1, the RECOMMENDER'S INFORMATION page within the application portal needs to be completed several days before March 1 so that BUILD PODER can send a link to your recommenders to upload their letters. RECOMMENDERS MUST UPLOAD LETTERS BEFORE 5PM ON MARCH 1, 2020. Applicants will not get direct access to the upload link so this is a vital part of the process. If you start your application on the day of the deadline, we will not have enough time to send your letter writers the upload link. Unless you are using a public computer, you can start your application and come back to it later. If you are using a public computer, we recommend you begin and complete your application several days before March 1, 2020.

Here is what the RECOMMENDER'S INFORMATION page looks like within the application:
