Dear Mr/Ms/Mrs Individual’s Name,

This letter is a formal request for financial aid to cover the costs of continuing my study in college. My institution provided me with $5,000 in financial assistance, which was sufficient while I worked part-time.

My father, on the other hand, has been rendered immobile due to a heart attack, and I am responsible for his care in the mornings and evenings as his only child. As a result, I had to quit from my job.

I didn’t apply for student loans since I didn’t want to go into debt and didn’t have enough money. It is currently too late to apply for a loan. 

I also approached my college’s financial aid office for help, but they declined to increase my financial aid this year.

I will continue to apply to my institution for grants, scholarships, and financial aid for next year, but I implore you to help me get through this difficult time so that I do not have to drop out.

A copy of my bank statement, confirmation of the financial aid I receive from the college, and a letter stating that they will not be able to support me further this year are all delivered.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my situation and for taking it into consideration. I’d be happy to discuss how much I’ll require and am open to being flexible. 

I am looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. I may be reached by phone or email at [(555) 123-4567] or [].
