Write an application to the Principal requesting him to grant you a free studentship

Sir,

With due respect, I have to state that I am a student of class XII of your school. I belong to a poor family. My father is a peon in collectorate. His salary is meagre. He has to support a big family. My grandmother is a patient. A big portion of his salary is spent on her treatment.

I am a good student of your school. I always stand first in my class. All the teachers appreciate me. I am also very active in sports. I have led my school hockey team at interĀ­state level. I am very sincere in both studies and sports. I want to do good in life.

But my father is unable to help me in my studies. He no longer wants me to continue my studies.

I, therefore, request you to kindly grant me free studentship, so that I may go on with my further studies.

Thanking you,
