Want to write a compelling letter reqesting scholarship? Here is your sample.You may create your own circumstance.
I am a student pursuing my graduation having severe financial crisis and other challenges which I will disclose during the course of this letter. I am very good at studies but my current circumstances don’t seem to allow me go with my dream.. I have been suggested by a friend that your organization helps the meritorious and needy students for the purpose of graduate studies. I write this letter to implore you if there is a scope to support me with a scholarship.
I am a 43 year old Hispanic woman having been challenged of disability with severe dyslexia.An accident at work caused me Throatic Outlet Syndrome, chronic pain, migraines and several surgeries for TOS and shoulder problems. I am recovering from my physical sufferings but the future of my education is the most immediate challenge.
I used to be an artist right from my childhood and drew immense satisfaction by transporting my vivid imaginations on the canvas. Would you believe I made the colors talk! Unfortunately severe pain in the shoulders does not allow me to paint anymore. Initially I would not give up but I had to come to terms with the reality. I have cried for hours in loneliness and had sleepless nights. I am a human being too. I only discovered that was not going to resolve my crisis.
The challenges I faced could never dilute my intentions to pursue my education. Now I see these difficulties as opportunities in disguise. I want to set an example for the people challenged by hard luck. More the difficulties, greater my determination to proceed. My conscience suggests that the gap between my problems and the success is the initiative to ask for help.
You will appreciate I continued to get brilliant grades in studies in spite of the tyranny of luck. But for the help and encouragement from friends and my teachers I wouldn’t have made it possible. I have already run out the savings of my parents. What all I have now is hope.
There are people like you whose presence makes earth a better place to live. I need scholarship to complete my graduation. An annual amount of $ 15,000 would be sufficient. I will meet rest of my needs through part time writing which needs lesser concentration than painting.
I am sending this application with great expectations. I shall be grateful if your organization could favorably consider my scholarship case. I can be available for a personal interview at your convenience on working days.
