Letter to Decline scholarship offer because of a better college offer

Letter Template: 1

Dear (Name of the person),

I am writing in response to the scholarship that you offered me at X university for my graduation course.

I want to let you know that I can’t be able to accept your offer as I want to join Z college for my studies because your college is not offering graduation in ‘Arts,’ but I want to pursue in ‘Arts’ only. It would be a pleasure to join your college, but it is not only a scholarship that can force me to join it.

My goals are clear to me, and also I can afford to pay the fees of college. I am sorry for rejecting this offer as I can see a better future in that college.

I can see a better opportunity for me, but it doesn’t mean that I am not thankful to you for your generosity. I will always remember your gratefulness and recommend your college to other students.

I request you to forward my scholarship to one of my friends who is a student at your college because she is financially unstable, and it will be a great help to her if we get some financial aid assistance. I hope you will consider my request and take it positively.

Thank you so much for showing interest in me.

Regards,

XYZ

Letter to decline scholarship offer because of a foreign college offer

Letter Template: 2

Dear (Name of the person),

I feel so regretful to inform you that the scholarship you had offered me at X university cannot be accepted by me as I have got an offer letter from a foreign university for a graduate course in business and management.

I am so willing to continue my graduation from there as my family is also planning to shift there in the coming month. I cannot pay their high fees structure, so they are also ready to offer me a scholarship for my course.

They are so humble and ready to support me in all aspects. They are so impressed with my grades and achievements that they are ready to offer me free accommodation on their campus. I am so grateful to them, and it will be more comfortable for me to join that university as my family will also be there. 

I hope you don’t take my opportunity otherwise and you will also understand that it will be a better offer for me. I will always cherish the time I spent in this college, and it will always be one of my best memories. I would like to forward my scholarship to anyone else who is in more need. Thank you for your generosity. 

Regards,

XYZ

Letter to decline scholarship offer because of a job

Letter Template: 3

Dear (Name of the person)

I want to inform you that I got a scholarship offer two days back at X University. But I am sorry that I am not interested in accepting that offer because I am discontinuing my studies at the University as I got a job offer.

Thank you for showing interest in me and supporting me by giving me the scholarship for my studies, but it is an emergency in my house, and I have to choose a job over my studies.

My brother was the only earning person in my family but unfortunately, he met with an accident a few days back and cannot be able to continue with his job so I have decided to drop my studies and to join as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your generosity, but it is my bad luck that I cannot come to the university anymore.

I request you to forward this scholarship on my behalf to a student who is also financially unstable like me or who is thinking to discontinue their studies because of the high fees. I will be obliged if you can do that for me. It will be my pleasure if you can help any other student.

I don’t want any student to leave college because of their financial issues and also think that every willing student deserves to study at the university. I hope that it will be helpful to anyone else.

Regards,

XYZ

Letter to decline scholarship offer because got a better one

Letter Template: 4

Dear (Name of the person),

I am writing this letter about the scholarship you offered for “x” University. I am so thankful for your kind interest in me, but I want to tell you that I cannot accept this scholarship because it belongs to the students who cannot be able to pay their University fees or are financially weak.

I have no need for this scholarship as I am able to pay the fees and also I got the scholarship on the basis of merit. I think it is my dignity to accept the merit scholarship despite the financial scholarship.

I cannot feel right in my place to avail the benefits of both the scholarships as the financial scholarship should be forwarded to any of the students in more need than me.

It is my advice to you that you should not give the scholarships on the basis of the lottery system because in this manner many students who are financially weak can not be able to avail themselves. There is very little possibility that it will be awarded to the one who needs it.

The essence of the scholarship is always lost if it goes to a person who is financially stable, and also there are few students who find it right to reject the scholarship if they do not need it.

 So, I request you to change your criteria to distribute the scholarships.

I will be honored to accept the scholarship which is given to me based on merit.

Regards,

XYZ

Letter to decline scholarship offer because of no need

Letter Template: 5

Dear (Name of the person),

I am thankful to you for showing interest in me for offering the scholarship offer at X University. I am sorry to inform you that I cannot accept your offer because I think other students need it more than me.

If I avail of this scholarship then I will get a concession in the University fees structure but I spoke to many other students who are financially weak and will be really happy if they get this. 

I want to tell you that I am financially sound and can pay the entire fees of the university without any scholarship and request you to forward this opportunity to any other needy student.

The student who is financially weak will definitely understand the importance of this scholarship, and also, it will look good in their hands. I get the scholarship only because it is on the basis of the lottery system otherwise, I do not deserve this.

Many families in the town cannot make their kids study in colleges because of the high fees that private institutions usually charge. 

This may happen many times when the scholarship goes to the students who really have no need for this but only a few students have this moral to reject it.

Students feel so proud and lucky to have this scholarship but I think you should only pick those students who actually want it. it means a lot to them. I have no regrets about not accepting this scholarship.

Regards,

XYZ
