   Character Reference Letter for Scholarship

To Whom It May Concern:

{Name} would be an excellent choice for the scholarship you are offering. I have known {Name} for {length of time} in my capacity as {teacher, friend, etc.}, and I have come to know {him/her} quite well in that time.

{Name} is a dedicated student who cares deeply about learning as much as {he/she} can on any given subject. {His/her} curiosity is seemingly insatiable, which is a great quality in any student.

{Name} has maintained a {number} G.P.A., while participating in extracurricular activities like {list of activities}.{He/she} also volunteers at {place where student volunteers}, and has a part-time job at {place of employment}.

{Name} needs to go to college, because higher learning is where a mind like {his/hers} belongs. Without the help of your scholarship, I'm not sure that {Name} would be able to afford college. This would be a tremendous blow to {Name}, for sure, but also to the rest of us. I have no doubt that, with further education, there is limit to what {Name} will be capable of doing.

Please choose {Name} for scholarship. {He/she} will be an excellent representative for your organization, and you'd be helping a most deserving candidate.

Thank you,
