Scholarship Appeal Letter, failed to meet required GPA, very disappointed

This is my scholarship appeal letter, any critics on content and grammar are needed! Thanks for your time.

To Whom It May Concern,

I am honored to have been a recipient of the Spirit of Auburn Founders Scholarship, and it has allowed me the opportunity to attend Auburn University. Unfortunately, my grades have slowly declined, I failed a course this past semester, and as a result I have failed to meet the requirements for renewal of my scholarship. I am writing to you all in hopes that the decision to cancel my scholarship will be reconsidered.

This past semester was particularly difficult and stressful for me. Obviously, classes are getting more difficult as I am getting into my major courses. I began dealing with an increasing amount of stress, as any other college student would, along with depression and anxiety. It crept into my life in the form of loss of motivation, trouble focusing on academics, and constant worrying about every little thing that happened in my life. I knew things were getting worse for me mentally, which in turn affected my academics.

After struggling with an episode that led to the contemplation of taking my own life, I made the tough decision to seek help through Auburn's Student Counseling Services. After my first session, it was immediately clear to my counselor that I was facing depression. Some may think depression has become a common diagnosis, especially among college students, or don't understand its impact on one's life. But this has been one of the hardest things to cope with in my life. It is a daily struggle in everything that I do. However, now that I know what I am dealing with, I am getting the help that I need. I attend counseling sessions every couple of weeks, and I am constantly trying to improve my outlook on life. I am confident that with regular counseling I will be able to handle my condition better than I have been dealing with it previously.

As I go into my junior year here at Auburn, I plan to continue getting counseling, get academic help as needed, and stay motivated and focused on school. I am extremely disappointed in myself for allowing my GPA to fall, and I want more than anything to improve my condition and my academics. I fully understand the areas in which I need to improve on and ask that you reevaluate the decision to revoke my scholarship. If granted this scholarship again, I will work hard to meet its requirements, which I know that I am fully capable of doing. I thank everyone on this scholarship committee for the opportunity to regain my scholarship and hope that you understand my situation. I have attached my psychological evaluation from this past spring. Again, thank you for your time and consideration.

I would also suggest you re phrase this sentence "It crept into my life in the form of loss of motivation, trouble focusing on academics, and constant worrying about every little thing that happened in my life.", It's a little awkward but I cant point out what is wrong with it
