Re: A Grant Request
Dear Ms. Lovelace
I am a current 2nd year Psychology student at your esteemed institution, the Portland Vocational Institute. I have been an active member in many societies carrying various posts for the past semesters while excelling in my semesters with a GPA of 3.9.
I have been selected by the National Psychologists Bureau to attend its annual 3-day Conference in New York this summer. However, the registration fee for the Conference is $300.
Hence, I am writing to request of you for a grant of $300 to allow me to attend the Conference. I believe this Conference will benefit Portland Vocational Institute and me as I pursue my studies and career in this field. The last date of registration for the Conference is the end of May 2010.
I hope to receive a favorable response from you soon.
