How to Write a Motivational Letter for NSFAS Appeal

Published

on

How to Write a Motivational Letter for NSFAS Appeal: On this page, you will learn how to write a motivational appeal letter to NSFAS, stating the reasons why you are appealing your application status.

NSFAS Motivational Letter Sample

Dear Mr. Man, 

My name is Sipho Ngwenya, I am in my second year at the University of Johannesburg , studying a BA Public Relations Degree. I am so grateful for the funds I have received from your institution for the last year of studies. I wouldn’t have been able to attend a university without it.

Unfortunately, I have just been notified that my NSFAS funding is ending because my marks were lower than expected. Last year, my family has been in a very difficult situation. My mother was diagnosed with cancer. As a result of her condition, I have spent a lot of time going back and forth to Port Elizabeth, where my family lives. Of course, this has taken precious time away from the time I can dedicate to school. This hasn’t allowed me to study as much as I would like, and certainly not as much as I studied during the first year of my degree.

Fortunately, my lectures have been very understanding of my situation and are willing to go extra miles in supporting me with my subjects.

A university education means the world to me. Without your help, financing my degree won’t be possible. I’m requesting that you review my case and reconsider me for funding. I am under very pressing circumstances and could use your help greatly. Thank you very much for taking the time to go over my appeal.

You will find my transcripts attached to this letter. You will also see the appeal form from your organization. If you need any other information, please contact me by phone or email and I will provide you with it.  

Sincerely,

Sipho Ngwenya
