Dear [Name of Head of Admissions]:

This letter is a formal request for admission to [Name of College]. I have looked at several colleges that offer Bachelor’s degrees in Environmental Applications, and chose [Name of College] because of its commitment to its environmental program.

Your program is very extensive covering many more aspects of global warming than other colleges in this state. 

For example, you offer courses on the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the Forest Stewardship Council and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design among other things.

My aim is to participate in forming government environmental policy, and believe that [Name of College] is the best option to prepare me for this challenge. 

I have worked for the past two years in a waste management company and helped create innovative approaches to recycling certain items. 

Learning as much as I can about sustainable living in different aspects of commercial enterprises, will help me create fair and beneficial public policy.

My application form and all of the required document are enclosed. I hope for a favorable response from you. 

If you would like arrange an appointment or have any questions, I can be reached at [Phone Number] or at [Email Address]. Thank you for your kind attention to my application.
