Respected Sir ,
With reference to your announcement in the ‘ Times of India ‘ dated 10 th June , 2001 , regarding the award of scholarships to deserving students , I wish to state as follows ;
I passed the S.S.C. Examination this year , scoring distinction marks ( 80 % ), and securing the tenth rank in the Maharashtra State . My academic career has been consistently good .
I desire to join a college and take the Science Course .But my father ’s financial position ( he is a primary school teacher , earning Rs. 2500/- per month ) does not permit me to continue my education . I request that one of the scholarships of your trust be awarded to me .
I am 17 years old . I enclose copies of testimonials from the Principal and some teachers of my school .
Yours faithfully ,
