Sample Statement Letter Example

Dr. David Lloyd,

President of Thomas Hardy Foundation

24, Pot Drive,


Sub: Application for fellowship grant for research purposes

Dear Sir,

I have been advised by my Mentor, Prof. Annette Rivers of the Department of English Literature (University of Texas), to request you for funds for my research thesis. I am currently a Junior Research Fellow who is specializing on Thomas Hardy literature and wish to procure certain financial aids so as to continue my thesis titled “The figure of the ‘fallen woman’ in Hardy novels”.

The financial aid will mostly be required for my trips to Massachusetts so as to access the Thomas Hardy Foundation Library under your charge. I have completed half of my thesis paper and have attached it along with this letter. I have also attached all the resources that I have referred to for my paper.

I am completely aware of the fact that any false information provided will have serious legal repercussions.

Please respond as soon as possible.

Thanking you,


Marshall Erickson
