Is a dossier letter acceptable as a recommendation for a Beinecke Fellowship?

No. Our application procedures specify that applicants must arrange to have "two confidential letters of recommendation specifically addressing the merits of their project". Dossier letters are non-starters because they rarely, if ever, address the candidate’s reasons for wanting to use the Beinecke collections.
