Can you provide instructions on what is to be included in the Supervisor letter?

The Supervisor letter is similar to a reference letter when making a job application. The one page letter will highlight what you bring to the project in terms of contribution, data collection, innovation and leadership.

You should list the top contributors  of the project work, over and above that you can say “other contributing authors” and include the percentage of their contribution especially if you have more than 10 contributors.
