You want to attend a course of English in an English-speaking country and you see this section in a college prospectus.
Every year, two scholarships are offered to candidates from overseas who can show how our one-year course would help their career. Scholarships cover fees, accommodation and food, but not transport or personal spending money. Apply in writing, explaining why you think you deserve a scholarship.
Write your answer in 120-180 words in an appropriate style.
Say why you are writing and what you are responding to (e.g. an advert, a prospectus).
Use a formal, neutral style. (Remember: no contractions, no colloquial language, no direct questions, no informal punctuation such as exclamation marks.)
Be polite and positive, but not too much!
Use a formal ending.
Sign your name and then print your name dearly underneath.
I would like to apply for one of the scholarships I saw advertised in your prospectus.
At present I am training to be a secondary school teacher of English and I finish my course at the end of June. However, I feel I still have a lot to learn about the language and culture of the English-speaking world and would benefit considerably from a course in an English-speaking country.
The reason I am applying for a scholarship is that I cannot' afford the cost of studying abroad. I have no income except for my student grant, so if I am fortunate enough to be given a scholarship, I would have to work part-time to save some personal spending money. My parents will borrow some money for my airfare if I am successful.
I would appreciate being given the opportunity to study at your college and would be very grateful if you would consider my application.
If you know the name of the person, begin Dear Mr Smith/Dear Ms Jones, etc.
In one paragraph, briefly describe you/your situation,
In the next paragraph, make it clear why you are applying for a scholarship and why you would be a suitable candidate. Make sure you cover all the points in the question.
