Dear Sir/Madam

RE: Scholarship Request

I am writing to request an offer of the scholarship from your prestigious Scholarship Board. I ask that you will look into my poor financial situation and be gracious to consider my request for a scholarship so that I will be able to continue with my studies at your coveted College.

I am already in my second semester and had performed well last semester, scoring a GPA of 3.89. My aged parents have retired from work as there are six siblings in my family. I am the second sibling and hence, it is difficult for my parents to support me financial in my studies.

I hope to receive a favorable reply on my request soon as I find it hard to settle this semester’s tuition.

Thank you for your kind consideration.

Yours sincerely

Tom Hanks
