L.L.M. Environmental and Natural Resources Law and Policy
To Whom it May Concern:
My name is …. and I am writing in application for a scholarship to assist me throughout my time studying in the Environmental and Natural Resources LLM program at the University of Denver.
Being awarded the chance to study further in my field at the University of Denver is an incredible opportunity for me and one I intend to seize wholeheartedly without reservation. I have consistently proven throughout my previous studies and working experience than when presented with an opportunity I will strive as hard as I can to best represent myself and reward those who have granted me a chance to prove such. This is evident in my continuing relations with University of ____ and my professional mentors at _____in Santiago, Chile. Despite financial hardship I have always done what is necessary to further my studies and work experience. This includes six months of Pro Bono work helping the poor here in Chile in family trials as well as two solid years of balancing paralegal work alongside my study commitments in order to be able to pay the very considerable fees required to study law in Chile.
Relocating from Santiago, Chile for the duration of the program represents a huge challenge and while it is one I am fully committed to, it does present considerable financial strain. I will be doing my utmost to not let this effect my participation and concentration required to gain as much as I can from the program. I am, however, also relocating with my wife and as such will have a greatly increased financial burden to overcome throughout this coming time.
As partners, my wife and I are both committed to ensuring that this will be a successful period for the both of us. My wife will be looking for work opportunities wherever she can study in Denver. Hence, leaving our home in Chile and relocating to Denver with the increasing cost of flights, accommodation and living expenses it is certain to be a challenging time.
This scholarship represents to me an opportunity to fully focus my attention on the main objective of achieving the best I can in the Environmental and Natural Resources program. I will strive to be a representative and ambassador of University of Denver throughout my future career and am very thankful to be able to attend this course. I thank you for taking the time to evaluate this application and look forward to arriving in Denver soon.
