Write a Letter for a Scholarship

Applying for scholarships requires lot of documentation and if you are interested to apply for any scholarship program, you will have to be prepared for some writing work. You have to write a letter for a scholarship that you are going to apply. However, the letter is not just like any other letter. If you want to present yourself in an impressive manner, you need to follow some guidelines and write an imposing letter so that you are selected by the panel. This letter, in fact, is written to highlight the achievements and qualities of the applicant. Since you are writing this letter, you have to be very careful while writing this. It should not look like a list of all positive qualities and you have to save yourself from overdoing it too.

No matter what you write, you should proofread the written document once you have finished so that there are no typographical or grammatical errors. Check the spellings and clarity of the letter too. Remember, the letter is going to be read by a person and so find out the name or the designation of the person and then address the letter to him. You can read the instructions provided with the application form to know who is going to read the letter.

If there are no specific format mentioned for the letter, use a business format when you write a letter for a scholarship. Start your letter by putting your return address and date and then addressing the person, addressee’s contact information and then put the body of your letter only after greeting the person concerned. In the introductory paragraph write about your academic achievements and then develop one or the two best qualities in a notable manner.

Do not forget to thank the person for giving you an opportunity to apply for the scholarship before closing the letter. Also, add a sentence that you are looking forward to a positive response or hearing from them soon. Be polite and respectful when you are addressing the concerned person and when you write a letter for a scholarship.

    Im not sure if this is the letter or not but here goes. I am 16 years old and going to be graduating this year from a home schooling program called Ashworth. I have a job as a waitress making barley $3.00 an hour. My dad killed himself while in jail in 2003 and my mother killed herself in Lake Michigan on 2005. I live with my aunt and uncle who treat me as the “red-headed step child” as some might say. Im saving up for college to be a wraparound worker because when my parents died i went through a stage. A stage where i was getting into a lot of trouble and nobody could tell me anything. But ive changed with ALOT of help from my old wrap around worker. Ive been off probation for about 2 years now and i still talk and have lunch with her here and there. I want to make a difference in some struggling childs life like she did for me. If somebody could Email me about a scholorship sign-up for any other information it would be very much appriciated.

    Thank-you so much ,
