Let’s say there are two applicants to a private foundation fellowship which requires a faculty sponsorship and additional recommendation letters. Would there be a conflict of interest for a faculty to sponsor one applicant with an accompanying letter, and write a recommendation letter for the other applicant?

I thought there would be no conflict, but my fellow faculty member disagrees. What are the possible issues with this situation?
