Dear Sir/ Madam
I am applying for the Armscor bursary award to assist me in funding my studies for the 2022
academic year. I am currently in my second year, studying towards a BEng Industrial Engineering
degree at the University of Pretoria.
I am a hardworking student, having achieved an aggregate of 75% for my most recent exams and
have never failed a module. I am also involved in helping the youth of my community, by tutoring
Mathematics to high school students in my spare time.
My parents have paid my tuition fees for the first year but unfortunately, due to my father losing his
job, they are unable to continue to afford my study fees. Unfortunately, if I do not secure funding, I
will not be able to continue with my studies.
If I am accepted to your bursary program, I will use the skills and knowledge I have acquired to
continue to excel in my education and helping my community.
Thank you very much for considering me for the bursary. I appreciate any opportunity which helps
me achieve my academic and career goals.
