The two basic things that hinder a student from attending a high standard educational institution are the constraint of distance or lack of financial assistance. Financial aid hardship letter is a letter made used for the purpose of getting a financial support to a student to continue study on his or her desired educational degree. It is also used to inform the school or educational institution regarding the financial problem that you’re family is encountering at the moment.

Dear Sir Anderson,

I am a student of your well known educational institution. I was granted to study here based from my previous academic performances. However, due to my status in life and my financial background, I have not been able to pay the amount of tuition fees needed before the commencement of the academic year. All efforts made by my parents, in order to have that kind of amount, still not afford to pay the exact amount for tuition fees.

All my statements of account showing my financial status are attached here together with this letter.  Hoping that your institution will help me with a financial support so that, I can purse my higher education. Please considerate my financial status, any possible option for me to continue my study I will fully cooperate.

Thank you for understanding.
