As the world continues to change and the workplace becomes more and more challenging and competitive, it becomes imperative for anyone looking for a successful career to not only have the drive to succeed but also the training and expertise to do so.  This is not an easy step, however, and I realize that there is still so much that I need to learn before I can accomplish this feat.  This is why I am writing to the scholarship committee because I believe that with the assistance that I can receive I will be able to pursue my dreams of becoming a successful Marine Biologist in the future.

Being a Marine Biologist is only the beginning of a long journey for me.  I realize that it will not be easy and I look forward to that challenge.  In the short term, I see myself completing this degree and fulfilling the requirements for this course.  I believe that this experience will be sufficient to prepare me for the next step which is applying for a good internship position that will give me the training that I need.  I eventually plan to pursue larger goals such as using my education to help in saving the oceans and aquatic organisms.

I am different.  Not because I come from a different racial background or culture but because I dare to believe.  I have big dreams in life and even larger plans.  I have known from the moment that I was born that I was meant for bigger things in life.  I was never meant to just be somebody or even just a face in the crowd.  This dream of mine has driven me to pursue higher things in life.  It has driven me to achieve and get accepted in the college of my choice.  If I am given the opportunity, I am confident that this drive will also lead me to success in the future.

Far from it for me to just pursue this for myself but in the larger scheme of things I see myself using my education and training here as a means to help others as well.  The importance of protecting our environment cannot be overemphasized.  With this degree and training, I am confident that I can do my part in contributing to the welfare of society by protecting the environment.  There is also so much more that I can contribute by securing my degree in Marine Biology.

I realize that in order for me to become competitive in this world and to succeed I must take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities that come my way.  The real working world is harsh to those who enter unprepared and is ready to give rewards to those who are prepared.  As such, I firmly believe that the training that I will gain from this program in Marine Biology will greatly help me in the future.  One of the many wonderful concepts I have learned from my parents is to strive for academic excellence while balancing life with other activities and contributions.  This course is one of those other activities that I believe is crucial in the quest for academic excellence.

That is why I believe that this course is a crucial step for me.  My success and my accomplishments here will herald the beginning of the fulfillment of my personal and professional goals.  It is said that the one thing that nobody can ever take away from you is your education and that is the one thing that I plan to not only gain for myself but for others as well.  That being said, getting a scholarship will definitely be two steps forward in the fulfillment of my goals in life.

While I personally believe that “there is no such thing as a free lunch” and that everything a person has in life must come from hard work and perseverance, I also believe in charity.  I believe in helping others who do not have much in life.  I believe in helping people regardless of their nation, race or creed.  I believe in being a better person so I can best help myself and others around me.  I believe that this academic environment is the best place for me to turn these beliefs into realities.  I am fully aware of the significance of being considered for acceptance, and I am sincerely grateful for your time and consideration of my application.
