Sample Letter

To the Financial Aid Committee,

My name is [John Smith], one of the lucky applicants who were successfully accepted and enrolled into [college or university name] for the year [2019] fall semester.

It is truly an honor to be a part of such a prestigious institution and I am extremely excited about this opportunity. Having said that, I have to point out that it is going to be quite a challenge for me to be able to pay the college tuition fees given my delicate financial situation and I am afraid that without adequate support I will be forced to obtain a full-time job in order to fulfill my financial commitments, which will negatively affect my studies.

I am fully aware that there other applicants who are in the same situation as me and that it is your right to question why would the university choose to include me in the scholarship program. Below is a list of reasons that make me an excellent fit candidate for the scholarship program:

• My GPA is 4.9, which is considered to be among the best and fits easily into the 99% percentile end of the spectrum.

• My entrance exam average score was 98 over 100.

• The list of undergraduate projects that I completed or was part of is very impressive. I enclosed a summary of each one with this letter.

• I have a unique vision that is capable of transforming the way things can be done in [some domain].

• My professors strongly attest to my ability to excel and convert theoretical knowledge into actions.

• [Additional points that distinguish you from others and support your case]

In the light of the points discussed above, I kindly ask you to consider me for the scholarship program so that I can realize my vision and the vision of those who need [a revolutionary new something].

Thank you for your time and consideration.
