Letter Requesting Scholarship, Sample & Format
A letter requesting scholarship is written by a student to the institute or university he wants to get admitted into. The scholarship request letter is an advertisement the students gives of himself or herself and justifies why he or she thinks he or she should get the scholarship. A scholarship means that a percentage of the fees of the course the student wants to study will be paid by the institute because the student has an exceptional talent in the course and looks like a promising student who would bring good name to the Institute and that is why the Institute might be interested in giving the student scholarship. A scholarship request letter should highlight the skills and talents of the student along with the academic qualifications. The student should mention the grades over the years and should prove why he or she is good enough to be getting a scholarship.
This letter has to be sent to the head person of an institute or a university and so the way the letter is written hold an important place to decide whether the studnet gets the scholarship. The letter should be written in a formal format which should be correct. The tone should be polite as well as professional.

Re: Letter Request Scholarship
I am writing this letter to ask for a scholarship for the course of Criminal Law that I want to study from your reputed institution. I have been an excellent student in my graduation, and I have scored a cgpa of 4.4/5 for my 5th year. I have experience of 9 internships during the 5-year course I did. I have topped my class in my graduation course for six semesters, and I have been awarded for academic brilliance for three consecutive years. I have always been punctual during my internship and my classes, and I always maintained my attendance to be above 90%.
I hope that you will grant me the scholarship. I have attached my resume with this letter. I promise that if given a chance I will work hard and make your Institute proud.
