Lauren Savard 1607 E. Branch Ct. Forest Hill, MD 21050 (443)2868172 firstname.lastname@example.org Dear Dr. Cooney: My name is Lauren Savard, and I write to you to apply for the Beulah M. Price Memorial Scholarship. I am an Honors College student double majoring in Mass Communication, with concentrations in Advertising and Public Relations, and Spanish at Towson University who will to graduate in May of 2017. As someone who aspires to not only excel academically but who regularly uses the skills I learn to more effectively serve others, I demonstrate promise both as a student and an applicant for the award. In order to help me serve more effectively, I study Spanish passionately and hope to immerse myself in the language by attending classes in Costa Rica next semester. However, due to the high costs of studying abroad, it will be difficult to do so without additional funding which is why I am seeking this scholarship. With so many Spanish-speakers living in the United States, I desire to know the language so I can communicate with many more people. While abroad, I aim to continue serving as I do here in the United States by working with homeless populations or building homes for families in need. I also hope to travel to Ecuador to serve children in need with my church after graduating, and knowing their language would help me serve far more fruitfully. As my transcript shows, I have worked hard as a Spanish student, maintaining a 4.0 GPA in the major. Additionally, I have served in five communication internships and professional experiences. My favorite experience was a marketing internship at There Goes My Hero, a nonprofit that aims to add more men and women to the bone marrow donor registry. During my time there, I incorporated the promotional skills learned in public relations classes to recruit donors at drives and the writing skills to pen organizational blogs and newsletters. This internship, combined with certain volunteer experiences, has made me very interested in doing promotional or communication-related work for a nonprofit after graduation and has inspired me to start now. Already, I have co-launched a homelessness care kit ministry at my church, had the opportunity to describe it on 104.7 The Point with Steve Rouse, and spoke with a state legislator about increasing public awareness of homelessness services at Tiger Pride Day. My love for words has also made me consider public relations writing, though I would continue serving others and advocating for causes that are close to my heart regardless of my profession. Because of my commitment to excel academically and professionally, my desire to use the skills I have developed as a student to make a difference both today and in the future, and my dedication to mastering a second language, I believe I show strong potential as both a student and as a candidate for the Beulah M. Price Memorial Scholarship. Thank you for your time and consideration, and for offering the award. Sincerely, Lauren Savard Lauren Savard
