Character Reference Letter Examples

   Character Reference Request Template

I am writing to see if you would be willing to write a character reference letter for me. I am looking to {join the military, apply for housing, reduce my court sentence, etc.} and I need someone who can vouch for my skills, circumstances and overall character over a long period of time.

I have come to you because you have known me {number} years and can attest to my dedication, hard work, and overall personality. If you could write something positive about {the work I did for you, the class I took from you, my effort in an organization, etc.} it would really speak volumes for my application.

The letter can be a page or less and addressed to {Name}. Please let me know if you would be willing to assist me in this. If you'd like any further information, please contact me at {phone number} or {email address}.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
