Mr. David Taylor,
Dear Mr. Taylor,
Hi. I am Paul Reese and I am studying Arts at the Harvard University. We are a poor family and I have earned a seat at this prestigious university after loads of hard work.
I am writing to you to request you for a little help. I have heard that you sponsor able students who have the zeal to learn but are financially poor. I request you to fund my education this time and I assure you that I will not disappoint you. I have been a bright student throughout my education and I am a hard worker as you can see from my grades. Kindly consider my plea. I have enclosed a copy of all the relevant documents which might help you take a decision.
Thanks and regards,
