My name is your name and surname and I am a citizen of XXXXXX, currently enrolled /working at name of university or (institute) in name of your city. I am sending you my completed application form for the undergraduate /graduate/degree program in name of the field.
I have taken the IELTS/TOEFL/BEC exam on date of exam My official score for this exam was 8.5. I have attached a certified photo copy of these results.
As you know, the currency in XXXXXXX is nonconvertible. Therefore, I am not in a position to pay for the required application fee. I would ask that your department and the office of undergraduate (graduate) admissions give full consideration to my application without this fee.
I have noted on the application form that I am applying for full financial support from the university to cover tuition and living expenses. Due to my financial situation, I am totally reliant on the generosity of the university to support my studies. I would ask you to consider me for any scholarships, (teaching assistantships, or research assistantships) or other awards for which I am eligible.
I have enclosed all application materials in one envelope. I would ask that you please allow for extra time in transferring letters, documents, etc. At all times, I will try to stay in touch with you phone, fax or e-mail to monitor the progress of my application.
I have enclosed another copy of this letter which I would ask you to pass along to the Office of undergraduate /graduate Admissions so that they are alerted to the special circumstances surrounding my application.
Thank you very much for your attention to all these matters and for your consideration of my application. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
