Scholarship Application Letter

Dear Sir/Ma,

I am at my final year in University of Lagos, Nigeria. In my last semester exam I have got very good marks. My father is a government teacher and now he is retired. He is getting a pension of N12,000.00 per month. This amount of money is not enough for my education fees. So because of my bad financial condition, please I request you to grant me scholarship for my final year.

Thank you for your consideration of my application.

Yours Truly,

___________
