This request is a formal appeal to you for help with the tuition fees for continuing my college education. I have received $1,000 from my college as financial aid, and this was enough while I had a part-time job.
However, my father has become disabled due to a heart attack, and since I am his only child, I need to give him care in the mornings and evenings. This is why I had to quit my job.
I did not apply for student loans, because I was able to meet my expenses and didn’t want to go into debt. Now, it is too late to apply for a loan. I have also contacted my college financial aid office for help, but they declined to increase my aid this year.
I will continue to apply for grants and scholarships as well as financial aid from my college for next year, but am requesting you to help me through this difficult time, so I don’t have to drop out of College.
Thank you for you support and consideration you have given my situation.
