Re: Scholarship application for PQR College, London, Third Year Arts Stream.

Dear (Address the person by surname to create an air of formality).

People are bound to read this letter in a hurry. They have hundreds of scholarship letters to go through. The idea in the first paragraph is to make it concise and to the point so that your intention is clear from the first word.


Remember that your fate is completely depended on this scholarship letter. Extra care should be taken while writing about yourself. Write about your qualifications and aspirations. Explain to the college, that why you want to be a part of their esteemed reputation and also why you deserve to get the scholarship.

In this last paragraph, thank them for taking out time to read through your letter. Tell them that you are looking forward to be a part of their college.

Thank them in advance

Your name and date
