Sample Recommendation Letter For Scholarship:

Admissions Department

Birmingham University

Birmingham, United Kingdom

Date: 3rd June 2014

Subject: recommendation letter for scholarship

Respected Mr. Paul

I, Tim James, the principal of St. Mary’s School, London am writing this letter to you to recommend one of my favorite students Miss Patricia Brown for the 50% scholarship for the Mathematics Hons Course in your university.

I have known Miss Brown for 8 years, ever since she has been studying at our school. Not only is she extremely hardworking but has also been the topper of the school since her admission. She was always chosen as the prefect of her class and did her job really well. Be it sports, dramatics or public speaking, Miss Brown has displayed good results and represented the school in various competitions as well.  I can say it without a doubt that she is a deserving candidate for this scholarship and deserves to be admitted to your college.

If you have any other questions or queries, you can call me anytime between Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. I hope you consider this recommendation.

Thanking you


Tim James
