Here is my motivation letter for a university in Hungary. I really hope that you could give correct and give me some advice to improve my letter.

Thank you very much to spend time reading my letter.

Stipendium Hungaricum motivational letter

Dear Sir/Madam,
My name is XX and I am writing this letter to express my enthusiasm in pursuing the bachelor's degree program at the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship program.

I had a great passion for Mathematics when I was a kid. Immersed in numbers, proofs, and geometry is one way I choose to entertain myself in my spare time. Solving difficult math problems or proving a complicated theorem always makes me happy and satisfied and is the main reason for my addiction to math. In my eyes, Mathematics is really wonderful and beautiful, it is the king of other sciences subjects and governs everything in life, and only when we dig deeper, we can understand the magic and the beauty in it such as the Fibonacci sequence, Fermat's theorem, etc.

It was from that great love for Mathematics that I decided to participate in the contest to recruit gifted students and I excellently passed the class specialization in Informatics of a famous High school for the Gifted in Vietnam with the highest math score. I thought that my path to Math would be smooth and marvelous with my great achievement and abundant knowledge in secondary school. But I was too complacent about myself and rested on my laurels due to the majority of knowledge and math problems in High school I had learned and solved before when I was a middle school student. Sadly, I was the only student in my class who didn't get an excellent student certificate and my overall Math at the end of term was 7.6 in grade 10. This consequence was like a wake-up slap for me (a person who used to be very talented in Math). After that, I started being strict with myself and gradually found my inspiration and passion for Math back. After a period of hard work and seriousness with myself, I have regained my old self and strived to win 2 awards for an excellent student in Informatics and 9.0 math at the end of grade 12. It is my passion for Math and AI that motivated me to major in mathematics at the XX university (the university with the most research achievements in XX country and got a high ranking in the world).

Honestly, I am an ambitious and determined person, that's why I have always dreamed of becoming a good Mathematician and researcher in AI in the world. I believed that Hungary would be the perfect place for me to make that wish. My first motivation is Hungary is a beautiful and peaceful country and has the top education in the world. It would be a big mistake not to mention the development of Mathematics in Hungary with countless scientific articles and great research. I believe that having an opportunity to study Mathematics at one of the oldest and quality universities in the world in Hungary will help me to discover a lot of new things about mathematics and improve myself on the way to my dream.

After completing my university degree, I will definitely continue to study for a master's degree to further improve my knowledge. After that, I will definitely return to XX to do research and contribute to Mathematics in XX. I really want to be able to raise awareness of the importance of Mathematics among students in XX and share the experiences and knowledge that I have cultivated while studying abroad and contributing my efforts to the community (general world mathematics).

I understand how difficult it is to be selected for the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship. But I believe that with careful preparation and with my academic background, I can fully afford it. Receiving this scholarship entails a lot of responsibility and obligation to work hard, and it would be an honor for me to receive this scholarship to make my dream come true.

Finally, I would like to sincerely thank you for taking the time to read my application and creating favorable conditions for me to study in Hungary.

This line is what should set the tone for your motivational letter. This compresses both the academic and career goals that direct your interest in the undergraduate course. Use these as seperate discussion points to convince the reviewer of your love for numbers and interest into turning it into a career.

I was too complacent ... the end of grade 12.

This is only a motivational letter. It does not need to present negative information. Focus only on motivating factors and the strength of your interest. This is not the place to tell the reviewer why you should not be a candidate. You want your motivation to be strong and convince the reviewer of the validity of your motivation and career goals.

Try to use a stronger reason to study in Hungary. The current presentation of that consideration is not convincing.
