In relation to your recent circulation, for me to be able to proceed with my B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering and to continue with higher studies in IIT, I would like to apply for a TATA Foundation scholarship. I have been an excellent student throughout my academic life and I was able to sustain an average of 86%. I attached in this letter some copies of all the certificates that I have received at school in case you will be needing them.
We are a poor family and my father has an annual income that falls within the scholarship-eligibility criterion and I enclosed with this letter the certificate of his annual income. I will strive hard to keep my average above 90% in this B. Tech course and I know that this scholarship grant will be of great help in the realization of my dream of becoming an IITian. I will bear in mind that I need to strive hard to meet your expectations and I am going to prove to you that I will make it and that I can bring glory to this institution.
