Dear respected donor,
I have secured merit-based admits from Penn State University in Acoustics engineering program and also at University College of London in Environmental Engineering program.
Unfortunately, I am unable to get funding for both colleges. Since being an international student, I have to pay a hefty amount as tuition and maintenance fee which I would be unable to pay without scholarship or some support.
I am a first generation graduate from my family in India but I have a good academic record from one of the best institutes in India (IIT Madras) and a good alignment to work in the domain of Acoustics and I am pretty sure that my work will in some way help the society at the end. Actually, I am a working professional now but taking a risk to pursue my dreams of higher study in the domain that I can contribute in a good way. I am passionate to continue my study but I am short of funding so it would be great if you guys can pitch in and help me fulfill my vision.
I would be grateful and promise you to contribute in a similar way to a merit based financially weaker student to pursue his doctoral study once I pass out and let this legacy continue.
Kindly feel free to ask any information that you require to assess me.
