Thank you very much for the special privilege that you have given me. I know that many tried to have the scholarship that you have been offering but I was the one who was chosen to have it. I cannot express enough my gratitude in words.
I will repay the favor by being very diligent and persevering in my studies. Trust that I will not fail the trust you have given me. I know that the coming days will be hard and full of trials, but it will never discourage me, for I have the guidance of your good patronage.
You are not known to me personally as I am not to you, yet the trust you have given me is that of an old friend. This scholarship is proof of your good heart and ever helpful nature.
