Dear Sir or Madam,
I would like to apply for a scholarship for the duration of my studies at ABC. I am aware that only a limited number of students are granted scholarships. However, I am sure you will find me a deserving party.
I have always been a consistent performer in my academics and have always been able to maintain an excellent score of 80 % and above right from my higher secondary to my undergrad degree. I have managed to be in the top 10 % if my class throughout my education and always strive to better myself each time.after edits:
To Whom It May Concern,
First I would like to express my appreciation for this opportunity to apply for scholarship offered by (uni name). I am sure you will find me a deserving party because of my excellent academic background, extra-curricular activities and interest in research.
Rather than learning for a grade, I learn for the joy and value of learning. This attitude has allowed me to keep my grades high and be a successful student. I have been a consistent performer in my academics and have maintained a constant score of 80 % and above throughout my secondary and undergraduate education, and was always placed in the top 10 % of my class.
In addition to my undergraduate curriculum, I took a Certification course named CoEDAS (Career Oriented Education in Design & Simulation), which focused on solving real-life design challenges using Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) technology, simulation-based analysis using Altair HyperWorks and New Product Development (NPD) and Virtual Product Development (VPD) processes. Due to my interest in pursuing my postgraduate study in Germany I have completed B1 level language proficiency at Goethe Zentrum, securing above 85% in each level of German.
During my tenure as school leader of (School name) (2009-2010), my colleagues and I have organized a wide range of events like school day, seminars by famous personalities, inter-school techno-cultural programs and the All-India School Athletic Meet. I was also a member of the college Road Safety Club and have organized many awareness seminars and programs. All this helped me develop organizational and management skills, while instilling in me a sense of responsibility.
I have opted for MSc xxx, because of my profound interest in machining technology. I would like to research on modeling of machining process for predictive simulation as it can help reduce machining errors. I believe the advanced masters curriculum and the interdisciplinary approach will prove highly beneficial for my research and career interests.
However, as a student, I have limited financial means. I come from a middle-class Indian family, so monetary support from my parents will be restricted. While a part-time job will help meet some of those expenses, I hope to focus my time and energy on the course and coursework. Therefore, a scholarship would be really helpful to me in both meeting living expenses and in focusing on the course.
In addition, I will get a chance through the scholarship to interact with students from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds drawn from all over the world. The exposure is important for interaction and integration of diverse ideas and perspectives pertaining to various global issues
Based on my excellent academic record, leadership potential, and active participation in a myriad of co-curriculum activities, I believe that I have made a compelling case for granting me this scholarship. Once again I am grateful for considering my application and I look forward to a favorable reply.
