  • explain how this course will help you

You do NOT need to write any address.

Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir / Madam,

I am writing to you as I have heard that your organization provides monetary support to students who aspire to take part-time Microsoft Excel courses.

Please, let me take a second to provide you with a bit about myself and my background. I hold a degree in Internal Auditing, and most of my work is based around computers. To date, I have conducted internal audits of many organizations ranging from small owner owned companies to stock exchange listed companies. But still, I don’t have facile command over Microsoft Excel as most of my previous clients used a different software. I came to know about the fact that your organization grants funds to students who want to take this course. I believe this course will greatly help me in my upcoming audit assignments and will make me stand out from the rest of my peers.

My intention in writing this letter is to ask that you consider acknowledging a self-motivated individual who could make the most of your funds.

Hoping to receive your supportive reply,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have decided to enrol in Risk Management in IT course as a part-time student and the management has been advised me that I can obtain a financial support for this course from your esteemed organisation as per my academic and working experience.

This course will enhance my skill, knowledge and give me an opportunity to extend my career towards network security field.

I would be grateful if you could consider me as a nominee to get course fees from you.

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,
