Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to apply for participation in [internship program name] in ******, USA.

My name is [name], a flexible and highly motivated student at Vilnius University, Lithuania, currently studying in the second year of a four year bachelor’s degree in computer science.

I was always willing to participate in creating outstanding products that reach professional and home environments worldwide, also giving an enjoyable feeling that I have a part in it. I believe that internship in your company, working in both creative and challenging environment, will provide an opportunity for gaining a valuable experience to build strong foundations for professional programming skills and will acquire new contacts, invaluable for my further career. Further more, working abroad, provides a rare possibility to see things from the outside, from a completely different angle, that I believe, is extremely important in professional and cultural backgrounds.

Personally, I define myself as a dynamic and creative, goal-oriented team player, eager to give the most of myself to achieve the best results possible. Also I am currently working as C/C++ teacher.

I am confident that being familiar with different programming language climates, teamwork and teaching C/C++ experience gives me enough knowledge and I will make me a good candidate for this internship, taking as much as possible from it.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration of my application. I am looking forward to your positive response.

Sincerely,

[name]
