SUBJECT: Scholarship Recipient Decision
Dear Scholarship Awards Committee Members,
I have spent a great deal of time reviewing the applicants, taking into consideration the trials and tribulations each student has faced in their academic career. Because many of our applicants do not possess an outstanding GPA that would be telling of their success at our school, my choice is heavily weighted on each candidate’s future potential.
With that being said, I would like to nominate Sam to receive the scholarship due to two factors. For one, Sam possesses a courageous spirit, one that has already been recognized by comparable awards committees. In addition to his competitive spirit, his story will resonate with many individuals who have faced great adversity in life. With the dynamic that Sam possesses, I believe that giving him a second chance in academia would be the most opportune choice for our school.
