I am writing to you in the hope of obtaining the scholarship in history to support my study and some research work.
I am a graduate student in the Department of History in the Northeast University for Nationalities. In addition to study and research work, I also write books. Recently I have finished a book on the history of the Oroqen nationality in China, which is to be published by the World Book Publishing House in the coming year. I would like to focus on that field for my advanced studies.
Enclosed please find three letters of recommendation and my resume. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to your reply.
Dear Dr. Gomes，
I have read the announcement of the scholarship in chemistry that the University of Colorado is offering, and I would like to submit my application.
The enclosed application form for admission to the graduate school of your university will give my educational history. However, I would like to point out that I have just received an M.S.
Respectful Sir or Madam，
I‘m writing to you to apply for a scholarship of your school. I’m very glad to hear you can provide scholarship for exchange students. That‘s really good news for me. And I am very appreciating that you can give me a chance to explain way I want to apply for a scholarship. My name is Haoyu Liu. I’m 17 years old and I‘m a fresh man in Taiyuan No.2 Foreign Language High School. I’m very proud of as one of my school. I‘m diligent and I know I must be a useful person. So I always tell myself that I have to learn more and more. I’m also very outgoing and I like to help people as possible as I can. That‘s way I got many friends. I was born in Jixian， a small county with poor land and terrible weather. My parents were farming at home. Even life doesn’t easy， I still hopeful enough. I still love my hometown and I want to do something for my country.
So I want to learn more knowledge as possible as I can. I know how hard people‘s life. So I want to change it by myself. That’s way I‘m diligent and I like to help people. But when I went to high school， our life got worst. My parents can’t afford my tuition. So my father went to Taiyuan to find a job. And we have to rent a little house near by my school because my school is far from my hometown. But I still keep my faith， because I know that my family will support me to let my dream come true forever. When I got the information that I can be an exchange student， I was exciting but confusing. I really want to go to German to study but I don‘t want my parents worry about my tuition. So I’m writing this letter to you to apply for a scholarship of your school. I wish I can do better just because I have a dream that I can change my family， my hometown even my country.
I hope I can share responsibility for my parents from this thing. At school， I‘m a good student. I’m interested about sports， arts and science. I also like to study foreign language. That‘s way I chose to study German and English at school. I noticed that language can let me communicate with others easily. But I can’t only study language. I have to know about the Germanic culture clearly. That‘s way I need to be an exchange student this time. But I need your trust. I need a scholarship of your school， because I’m a good student.
I have a dream. In that dream， I can see my parents are smiling because I became a useful person. I can see my teachers are smiling when I came back from German. My will is strong. And I know I can do better when I go to German. So I‘m writing to you to apply a scholarship. And I’m waiting for your return. Thank you for your kind heart and reading my letter.
