Dear [Salutation],

The Successful Student Academic Scholarship matches my experiences, achievements, and goals as an undergraduate student at Princeton University. The requirements state students must have a 4.0 GPA with over 150 hours of community service credits. At this time, I have a 4.5 GPA as a member of the University Scholars Program and 167 hours of community service credits.

I am enrolled in the Pre-Medical program for University Scholars at Princeton University. My achievements as a University Scholar are not the only factors which make me a qualified candidate of the Student Academic Scholarship. I am an active student leader trained and experienced through the Student Leadership Club at my University. At this time, I am a Board Adviser and Representative for the Student Leaders on campus. Our mission is to educate, enrich, and improve our campus student leaders through conferences, training, and community projects. With these developments underway, my responsibilities involve recruiting student leaders through organization marketing, word-of-mouth, and workshops offered on campus.

The Successful Student Academic Scholarship will assist in paying for tuition, books, and other learning materials necessary for academic achievement. My intention is to utilize the scholarship to reach an even higher level of academic achievement before my graduation in June 2009.

Please review the enclosed resume, references, and application for my candidacy of the Successful Student Academic Scholarship.

Thank you for your time,
