    i would like to apply for a free Australian scholarship in any possible fields of computer science-electrical engineering or mechanical engineering.
    i am twenty-four years old and i think i have got the right qualification for this scholarship. i have taken my diploma(licence) in the field of Electric from the State Professional Technical Institute in Iran and i speak English fluently.i hope i could continue my education in the best way and in the best country ,as this is one of the biggest dream of mine to work with a knowledgeable talented group of students and lectures who have a great enthusiasm.Although i am so eager to pursue my education and even pass the PhD,unfortunately i never have had such an opportunity because of some financial situation.however i would never give up because i think i have enough talent and perseverance(as my friends and teachers say) to become a successful person.

    thank you for considering my application.i hope to receive an e-mail from you soon.

  34. Eze, Ifeanyi Christian says:

    My desire for higher degrees in the area of Development Studies and/ or Project monitoring and evaluation is one that is borne out of my desire to be part of the solution to summary under development (in the midst of plenty) and its concomitant incresing militancy especially in the Niger- Delta Areas of my Dear country Nigeria. I have refused to allow my lack of access to fund to nip in the bud my insatiable quest to know and a noble desire to earn a Ph.D in the aforementioned area hence my desire to seek fundind via this means.
    I graduated from Imo State University where I earned a Second Class Upper Division in History and International Studies. I am presently employed in the Nigerian puplic Service. [email protected] can reach me any time.
    So much thanks……
