Date: 19th May 2014

Subject: applying for the Gregson international scholarship

Respected Ma’am

I, Pearl Anderson am writing this letter to present my proposal for the prestigious Gregson yearly International Scholarship. This Philosophy scholarship is not only important for me but is also very valuable as it will help me carve my career further into the field of Philosophy.

I have pursued my bachelor’s in Philosophy from Scotland University and was the topper of my class, all three years. I have special inclination towards the Modern philosophy and have also written a paper on it, which was awarded by the top educational award in Scotland. My deep interest in this field along with my research based career objective in Philosophical studies make me a suitable candidate for this scholarship and I hope you will consider me for it.

I am enclosing a copy of my essay and my supporting credentials with this letter so that you can evaluate me better. My essay is titled ‘Existence of God’ and questions the very existence of the creator of the world from a philosophical perspective.

Hoping to hear from you soon,


Pearl Anderson
