Dear Sir, Madam:

My name is .... With this letter, I would kindly like to introduce my candidature as a graduated student of the University of Natural Sciences, Vietnam National University of Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam, who is applying for the Mundus Programme.

I have studied the biotechnology at the University of Natural Sciences from 2001 to 2005 and acquired a bachelor of biotechnology last October. During the four years university-life, I was imparted plenty of biotechnological knowledge, including microbiology, molecular biology, genomic engineering, plant, animal, environmental and medical biotechnology and many subjects on agricultural biotechnology in the 4th year. However, I was tremendously interested in researches related to agricultural biotechnology, especially plant biotechnology and the micropropagation of the flower plants. Hence, I have decided to do a research on the micropropagation of an endemic slipper orchid of Viet Nam as my dissertation thesis. During the time doing this research, I was trained to be a prospective scientist who is familiar with doing research and working in laboratory and able to work individually or at team work. I have always endeavored to upgrade my education in the field of plant biotechnology by approaching to some novel method and protocol for plant propagation when taking part in some other researches under the instruction of my supervisor. However, through work in the plant biotechnology dealing with micropropagation problems, I came to recognize that my knowledge is still limited in many areas and I did know that people can study more than micropropagation with plant and agricultural biotechnology. Therefore, I plant to further an advanced study of plant biotechnology and agricultural management to learn more and also to put my knowledge into a higher standard, so that I could be a well-equipped and professional researcher.

After a thorough research of the Agri Mundus programme, I became aware that my knowledge of agricultural and horticultural crop management will be improved if I have an opportunity to enroll in this master course. This top-level programme will provide me plenty of knowledge in the field of agricultural development and horticultural crop management which can be very useful for my future carrier. In addition, working and attending this master course, I can meet different kind of people and culture that will give me different points of view, thus, contributing for my flexibility and creativity, besides the cultural and language gains. Moreover, I have come to recognize that I can obtain a deep and solid education in order to solve the diverse types of agricultural problems and to have a critical understanding of problems and solutions that my country is facing while I attend this course.

Personally, I am a person with a high perseverance level, someone who is motivated and ambitious. My teacher and supervisor know me as a courteous and resourceful student and my classmates know me as a light-hearted friend and an enthusiasm coworker. Furthermore, with my good command in writing and speaking English and French, I will not have to come up against any difficulties in studying scientific subject taught in English and French. Moreover, with my skill of taking part in many social volunteer activities and working with foreigners, I would be able to adapt to a constantly changing work environment, and also establish and maintain good working relationship with individuals of different culture backgrounds in the Programme of Agri Mundus.

To me, as a young female prospective researcher, it is my dream to devote a part of my life to the development of the Biotechnology in my country. My Viet Nam country is still an underdevelopment one, the Government has considered the goal of biotechnology development until 2020 is a significant and urgent tenor for the Country’s industrialization and modernization. Therefore, if I can be enabled to make a good course at the Agri Mundus Programme and make practical use of the knowledge I can gather throughout this Programme, I can be considered as a well-trained researcher which can be my advantage to lead a group of researchers in the future. With my skill, knowledge and experiences, I could do more than an ordinary scientist. Throughout my scientific achievements, I want to demonstrate with the world that the Vietnamese can do more than a soldier in a war; they are also good at learning, researching, applying and achieving novel scientific achievements.

I do hope that by my above-motivation words, I will be accepted as an applicant and a beneficiary of the Eramus Mundus Scholarship to study the Agri Mundus Programme in the 2006 – 2007 academic years. I understand that admission to the Eramus Mundus Scholarship is competitive, but I also understand that I’m qualified, eager and prepared to meet all of the challenges I will be presented with. I, therefore, would be most grateful if you could give my application form in your most favorable consideration.
I think this is very good. There are a few minor errors so check your grammar and word choices carefully but overall this is well-written and very enthusiastic.
Dear Nona,

I have just modified my motivation letter. Can you take a look over it again and give me some of your comments about it. Any hints and any help from you will be really appreciated. I’m looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. Thank you very much in advance.

Happy New Year and best regards from Viet Nam!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Sir or Madam:

My name is .... With this letter, I would like to apply as a graduate student for the Agri Mundus Programme and the Eramus Mundus Scholarship.

I have got a degree of Bachelor of Science in October 2005 from the University of Natural Sciences and my study focuses mainly on the basic and advanced knowledge of biotechnology, especially on the agricultural biotechnology. I am particularly interested in research related to plant biotechnology and the micropropagation of floral plants. Therefore, I have endeavored to upgrade my education in the field of plant biotechnology by approaching some novel methods and protocols for plant propagation when taking part in some researches (study on the in vitro corm formation of Gladiolus sp., study on some novel methods for micropropagating Paphiopedilum delenatii, Gerbera jamersonii, etc.) at Da Lat Institute of Biology. During this time, I have got some encouraged achievements: co-publish 5 scientific papers and 1 poster presentation, receive the Odon Vallet scholarship for researching student, acquire advanced and practical knowledge on the plan cell, tissue and organ culture. When working at Da Lat Institute of Biology, I was considered to be a courteous and studious student, a light-hearted friend and an enthusiasm coworker. In addition to my academic activities, I also have a chance to take part in many social volunteer activities which give me experiences in working individually or in team, working with foreigners, adapting to a constantly changing work environment and maintaining good working relationships with individuals of different cultural backgrounds. I have also experienced a task of an organiser and an emcee for an international conference. Good organizing and managing skills, good command of understanding and using English and French, and writing scientific paper skill are also my strong characteristics.

Through work in the plant and agricultural biotechnolgy, I came to recognize that my knowledge is still limited in many areas. Thus, I would like to have the opportunity to enroll in the master courses of the Agri Mundus Programme to put my knowledge into a higher standard. Your top-level programme will provide me plenty of knowledge in the field of agricultural development and horticultural crop management. In addition, working and attending this master course, I will have opportunities to meet people from various nations and cultures, offering me different points of view and contributing to my flexibility and creativity, besides the cultural and language gains. Moreover, I have come to recognize that a deep and solid education provided by your programme is needed for me to pursue my career in agricultural area and to have a critical understanding of the problems that my country is facing and their solutions. Therefore, if I successfully graduate from the Agri Mundus Programme and make practical use of what I have learned, I will play an active role in achievements of the agricuture in my country through my future research practice. The knowledge, skills and experiences that I benefit from the Agri Mundus Programme will contribute not only to my future carrier but also to the development of my country.
