Subject: Motivation letter for scholarship

Dear Sirs, Madams,

I was very glad when I saw this scholarship opportunity and with this letter I would like to express my gratitude to the Alumni Foundation of UoB for this program. I am an graduate of a University of Sarajevo holding BSc degree in mathematics with honors.

Since I have a quite strong academic background in mathematics I believe that Master course in advanced mathematics perfectly suits my profile and career prospects. My ultimate goal is to work with research based groups in applied mathematics sector as well as in local universities in order to improve research and human resource capacity building through training.

Due to my financial situation I was able to continue my studies in my country or abroad, since I am not in a position to finance my studies. Therefore,  I will be very grateful to be provided with scholarship to improve my education and incent my career prospects. Knowledge gained on the studies at University of Berlin I plan to transfer to my home country, where I intend to work in public sector or at the University.

This scholarship opportunity I perceive as an extraordinary opportunity to interact with students and scholars from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds coming from all the World.  This type of networking is very important for integration of different ideas and perspectives pertaining to diverse global issues.

At the end I would like to point out that I am determined to make the most out of the scholarship program. I believe that being a student in your department would not only empower my career development, but would give me the framework to utilize my full potentials. Moreover I feel that as a Masters student at your University, I can benefit from the numerous challenging career opportunities.

Once again I am grateful for considering my application and I look forward to a favorable reply.
