RE: Scholarship Application

Dear Ms. Smith:

I am writing to submit my scholarship application for Concordia University College of Alberta’s Financial Aid Program fall 2015.¬† Presently, I am a first year student of Master of Computer Science program. In order to prove my diligence, I have enclosed copies of my academic accomplishments.

These days, I am facing some financial difficulties, therefore, unable to pay my fee for the fall semester. I am planning to obtain a part-time job to manage finances of my studies but it would not be enough to cover the whole tuition and accommodation fee. Based on my deprived financial condition, I request for a student scholarship so that I would be able to continue my studies in anticipation of improved financial situation.

If you have any questions regarding my application, you may contact me anytime on my cellular phone at (000) 999-0149. To follow-up, I will contact your secretary next week.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
