Sample Application Letter for Scholarships
March 15, 2012

Dear Members of the Mortensen Scholarship Committee, I believe I qualify for the Mortensen Scholarship for many reasons. My grade point average is 3.67 and I rank 6th in my senior class of 51 students. I have been on the “All A” honor roll or the high honor roll, each marking period of my four years of high school. I have been a member of the New Lisbon National Honor Society for the last three years. In athletics, I have been on the cheerleading squad for basketball and football for two years. I have lettered in track for two seasons. My other extracurricular activities include membership in the Spanish club and participation on the forensics team for the last three years of high school. I have also enjoyed helping tutor elementary students this year as a peer tutor. I have performed community service by volunteering to help the New Lisbon Lioness Club with the holiday craft fair over the last three years, and I have also volunteered at the Juneau County Humane Society. Next year I will be attending UW-River Falls, where I will be majoring in Animal Science. After graduating from college, I plan to find employment in the field of agri-business. Since paying for the next four years of college is very expensive, I plan to take out student loans and work on campus as much as possible to pay for my education. My parent(s’) income(s) will only allow them to make a minor contribution to my college costs since they are already contributing to my older brother’s college costs. Thank you for considering me for the Mortensen scholarship. If I am fortunate enough to be chosen for this award, your contribution to my education will be truly appreciated. Sincerely yours,

Graduating Senior
