Subject: Request for scholarship

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have just passed the SSC Examination of the Pune Divisional Board. I have secured a first class with distinction, scoring 85% marks. I am very keen on continuing my studies. I want to join a science college as I want to become an engineer. Unfortunately, my father earns just Rs. 6000 per month and has to support a family of five. He simply can’t afford to send me to college.

I understand that your Trust helps deserving and needy students to pursue higher studies. I hope you will consider this application of mine sympathetically. I am willing to accept a loan, returnable after I finish my studies and get a job. If there are any prescribed forms to be filled in for the purpose, please send them across to me.

I enclose a certified copy of my SSC marksheet and two letters of recommendation, one from Mr ABC, our local MLA, and the other from my principal.

Awaiting your favourable replay,

Yours faithfully,
VWX
