A scholarship appeal letter is a request made to the college or university for financial-aid support when you attend the school. Usually, the school will offer a scholarship that is less than your ideal target. It is then that a scholarship appeal can be made to them, where you convince them to give you another chance and a bigger scholarship.
Follow these guidelines to write an effectively scholarship appeal letter with a professional tone:

Subject: SCHOLARSHIP APPEAL LETTER
Dear Mr. Simon,
I am writing you to make an appeal for the pursuing of a scholarship on my admission to your prestigious university. I have seen on your online website and circulars on the notice boards around the campus of scholarship offers to bright and capable students. I have the highest SAT score in the state and I am an athlete as well. My college identity card number is HJ-98721, which you can use to track my academic records. I have cleared my Bachelor’s in Commerce with 92% marks from New York University,, and now wish to pursue my Master’s degree in Commerce from this university. I therefore, request my appeal for a scholarship. I am attaching my past certificates and credentials with this letter for your consideration. Your kindness will aid my future studies and career without any hindrances.
