I am a first-semester master's student in my field of study and I have a question about applying for funding/fellowship opportunities.
I need two recommendation letters from professors for a fellowship that I am interested in right now, which is a foreign language-related one. I only took the general courses that are needed to satify the mandatory course requirements for my major. I lacked enthusiasm in most of my courses that I took this semester, which led me to be not too close with my professors.
Should I ask professors who taught me for a semester for a recommendation letter? ALso, is it okay to ask a professor that will teach me next semester?
My spring semester begins on January 17th, and the fellowship application deadline is February 1st.
