Is there a template for recommendation letters?

There is no set format; the contents are up to whoever writes the letters. However, they should include: the context in which the referee is familiar with the applicant and his/her work, why and how the referee may attest to the applicant’s qualities, and the referee’s expert opinion on how the applicant’s profile is suited to the work-plan.

Recommendation letters may be only written in Portuguese or in English.

The letters should be scanned and attached online, under the application form.
