Dear Mr. John
May I take this opportunity to apply for bursary grant. I have enclosed all required information along with forms and can further assist you in provision of more information with regard to the application.
As you would appreciate I am a talented student and have been progressing well with my studies and now all of sudden financial hardships can damage my educational career. I have passed my recent semester exams with flying colours and teachers have given me very encouraging picture of my efforts and appreciate my hard work.
Without finding a way to fund my education it will be difficult for me to continue my studies effectively. On other hand, if I take a part-time job to meet my education expense, it can also affect my abilities to pass the exams with equally impressive marks.
I shall be grateful if you give due consideration to my application.

I would like to apply for a college bursary support. I am a graduate student at [ABC University]. I have a great interest to pursue this degree course but financial difficulties are coming in my way to its successful completion.
Except for the financial hardships, I have been going well in my studies. I have recently topped in the trimester exam and lead my group of studies in all other co-curricular activities. My teachers are impressed with my encouraging progress, and the funding can help me focus my studies.
