Hello, everybody! I am applying for scholarship programme and have to send brief motivation letter. Unfortunately, it should be max. 2000 symbols, so I had to minimize it as much as I could. As English is not my mother language, I think, I'll probably have mistakes. Please, read and evaluate it. I will consider all your remarks ^_^
Thank you in advance !
With this letter of motivation I want to express my interest in applying for the X programme in the University of X. Graduated from X University , I want to move to the next level of my academic studies and pursue a master's degree. The reason that stimulated to make this decision is, as I believe, my potential and interest in acquiring an in-depth knowledge in the field of Finance.
In the childhood I was interested in calculators. Enjoying making simple math calculations I wished to have various kinds of calculators different in size and color. This strange love has gone, but it somehow made an impact on my life, now I have a desire - to become a successful financier. Several times I was asked if the finance is the thing I really enjoy. I can truly say that it is the field where I imagine myself working for the rest of my life. And I am happy that I have chosen profession which is in accordance with my personality, skills and interests.
It is said that you are what you believe yourself to be, if it is true I can define myself as a very purposeful, ambitious, hard-working and self-motivated person. During the studies at a bachelor's level I was actively involved in the extra-curricular activities. Being an intern in the Italian manufacturing company "X" and studying in X University appeared as a huge opportunity in increasing the awareness in my profession, in improving research skills and in getting a unique experience in living and working in the multinational environment. I believe that my international background will be an asset for my studies at a master's level in the University of X.
My choice of the University of X was mainly based on the international recognition of the university and attractive study programme. I am quite confident, that Master in Finance, that meets CFA standards, will significantly broaden my knowledge, playing a vital role in making a successful career in Finance. In addition, I believe that my background and huge motivation to study in your university makes me a valuable candidate for this programme. Despite the fact that the programme is quite challenging if I get the opportunity to become its part, I will do my best in order match all the credentials and maintain high standards at your university.
