Dear [Financial Aid Officer’s Name],
I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to you today in hopes of appealing my financial aid award for the upcoming academic year. As a dedicated and hardworking student, I am determined to pursue my studies despite the financial challenges that I am currently facing.
I was thrilled to receive my financial aid award, but I must confess that the amount offered will not cover my tuition and living expenses for the year. Due to unexpected family circumstances, I have been unable to secure additional funding through loans or scholarships. As a result, I am struggling to make ends meet and fear that I may not be able to continue my education without additional aid.
I would like to emphasize my commitment to my education and my academic goals. I have maintained a high GPA and am actively involved in extracurricular activities and community service. I am confident that with the help of financial aid, I will be able to continue my academic progress and contribute positively to my community.
I kindly request that you review my financial aid application and consider increasing my award. Any additional funding would greatly alleviate the financial burden that I am currently facing and would allow me to focus on my studies.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
