 I am writing to apply for the Master’s degree in Water resource and environmental management program at The University of Twente starting in September 2020. After I review graduate programs and consulted with my project manager, I am confident that your university has an excellent GIS and earth observation science for water resource and environmental management program and that best meets my goals because I am interested to acquire knowledge in remote sensing and focus on water.

The main economic activity in the Project area is the production of crops and the raising of livestock. The majority of the community uses unprotected sources and rivers to obtain water for domestic use. Animals and humans alike share the sources, of the resulting health risk. Furthermore, the average amount of time spent looking for water from unprotected sources varies between 40 minutes and one hour per journey, and the average water consumption in the majority of kebeles (villages) is some five liters per person per day, which amounts to 25% of the minimum recommended amount.

Climate change and water scarcity are producing the most dramatic consequences in developing countries. Good water management can drive growth and poverty reduction, and help deal with climate shocks. Poor water management can do the opposite. Without radical reform to how water is managed and allocated, the competition will increase, exacerbating water scarcity and pushing costs up, especially for the poor.

I believe that the Water resource and environmental management Master’s course offered by the University of Twente program from 2020-2022 is perfectly suited to my study interests. In the future, I will utilize my knowledge of them to the highest degree possible and will perform work that makes a difference in my home country. To help out the scarcity of qualified professionals, I am intending to acquire expertise and knowledge by going through MSc in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation;  I  hope that,  after completing my studies, I will be able to acquire the knowledge and skill necessary to solve the water resource and environmental problems in my country.

Getting back home, I want to be a skillful Water resource engineer in addition to my intensive involvement in research in the university project I am currently working on. All the knowledge and experiences I may gain will be my source of energy and wisdom to serve my poor country. This is optimistically a big contribution to the country that is in shortage of professionals trained in the field of Water Resource and Environmental Management.

I believe that my academic record and service work make me a good candidate for a scholarship or Financial Aid.


Yours sincerely

 To Mr. Chibrten,

My name is Liu Chung, and I am writing to show my interest in a scholarship for your Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. I have a passion for helping people, and I hope my financial limitations will not hold me back from harnessing this passion in my career.

I grew up in a lower-class family with a single mother who worked three jobs to provide for my brothers and me. My mother taught me the value of hard work and the importance of taking care of others who cannot take care of themselves. She also stressed the importance of education to us, teaching us that it would help us access an easier life. Her encouragement along with my determination helped me earn some of the best grades in my high school class. As my mother worked long hours, I spent a lot of time caring for my youngest brother who has cerebral palsy. I feel the time I spent caring for him sparked an interest in nursing. I learned to be compassionate and patient and was rewarded by his smiles. I hope to make my patients smile in the face of their health concerns in the future.

I feel my natural work ethic and drive to succeed would make me an asset to Los Angeles University. I know your school has an excellent nursing program, and feel it would give me the perfect environment to gain the degree I need to secure my dream job and give back to the community. Rest assured that I would make the most of the scholarship opportunity and make you and my mother proud.

Best regards

Liu Chung


Sample three

 Dear Ms. Catherine,

My name is Daniel Luis, and I am a veterinary science student at Washington University. I am responding to the call for volunteers posted on the All Paws Animal Shelter website. This opportunity attracted me because I have a natural passion for animal welfare, which I am furthering in my studies.

I grew up around animals living on a farm in rural Wyoming. During this time, I was involved in many aspects of animal care, including training our dogs, grooming our horses, and milking cows. I loved spending time with our animals and discovered how wonderful their companionship can be. I also learned the importance of the less-glamorous sides of animal care, including cleaning waste and pens to keep our creatures comfortable.

Through my veterinary science studies, I have learned even more about animal care, including how to diagnose and treat animal diseases and how to help animals give birth. I believe these skills, along with the experience I acquired on the farm, would be invaluable to you at All Paws Animal Shelter. I also believe I could learn a lot more to complement my schooling at your organization.

I am especially interested in working at All Paws Animal Shelter as you accept a diverse range of animals. I also appreciate your shelter’s no-kill policy and commitment to ongoing care for senior animals. These policies align with my own belief that all animals deserve the chance to live a long life and find a forever home, no matter how long that takes.

In conclusion, I feel I would be an asset to All Paws Animal Shelter and hope you will accept my application for volunteer work. Please contact me at danielous@email.com if you have any questions about my application.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Lous
