    RE: Scholarship Appeal Letter

    I am writing this letter to submit to you my appeal for scholarship from your organization. I have seen the several people whose lives have been raised to success by the Elites Scholarship Foundation and in the same way; I also wish to be part of that success.

    I am willing to study Surgery at the University of Belington from where I have been offered a place but have not been able to attend all classes. I understand the terms and conditions of your scholarship and I also accept that I failed to give my full attendance.

    Lately, I had to stay at home with my sick mother just to make sure she recovers fully. I am now glad that she is well and I hope to attend all classes without fail.

    Attached is her medical report from St. Charles Hospital. Thank you in advance as I wait for your reply in anticipation.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Corine Lucas
