The next example of motivation statement (with some changes) was provided by the author for me to be distributed. Hopefully be helpful.
MOTIVATION FOR APPLYING FOR A SCHOLARSHIP
NAME: Brama Kumbara
PROGRAMME: Master of Science in Advance Mathematics, Harvard University
REASONS FOR A (Name of programe) SCHOLARSHIP
First I would like to express my appreciation for this opportunity to apply for XXX scholarship. I am a graduate of Mojopahit University holding a degree in Mathematics Science, First Class Honours.
With the background knowledge I have in mathematics, I strongly feel that a master course in Advance Mathematics will be very relevant to my practice back here in my country Madangkara. I plan to work with research based groups in applied mathematics sector as well as in local universities with an aim to improve research and human resource capacity building through training.
Owing to limited resources, I have not been able to proceed with further studies here in Madangkara or elsewhere as I lack the necessary funds. I would be grateful to be provided with sponsorship to further my education and build a career and XXX scholarship will be immensely helpful. My future potential employer especially in the public sector such as local universities and research organisations will be a good channel where I can transfer the knowledge gained in an optimized manner to my country and future generations.
In addition I will get a chance through XXX scholarship to interact with students from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds drawn from all over the world. The exposure is important for interaction and integration of diverse ideas and perspectives pertaining to various global issues; for the world is a mosaic of different cultures and a single perspective cannot apply in all these cultures.
Finally I am determined to make the most out of the scholarship benefits. I will optimize my stay at Harvard University to garner a wealth of ideas that will apply when I return to my country and at the same time contribute to a better Harvard University and the Americans with my country Madangkara.
Once again I am grateful for considering my application and I look forward to a favorable reply.
Berikut contoh motivation statement yang pernah saya buat.
Since I was in Senior High School, I have believed that mathematics is an important factor in a life. All human activities in several fields such as information technology, economics, physics, social and others will run well if they are cited in a good mathematics framework. This circumstance stimulated me to attend faculty of mathematics and natural science. I choose statistics as my specialization even though at this time, there weren’t many people know about statistics and few students choose statistics as their specialization. I saw in several developed countries such as The Netherlands and Belgium, the mathematics degree-holders not only have many opportunities but also were cited as important scholar in their societies.
As a student at XXXX Department faculty of XXX of XXX University, I had numerous opportunities to do many activities. From XXX to XXX I had chances to become a lecturer assistant in mathematics and statistics laboratory. My resposibilities are taught and supervised students in the following subjects; Basic Programming, Computational Statistics, Statistical Methods and XXX.
Besides studying, I was active in the student senate and became the head of research and development division. In XXX I, in a team, became the third winner of Indonesian student research competition. Overall I am pleased with my academic record and I believe that it has prepared me very well for graduate school.
Presently, I work as a XXX for XXX. My responsibilities are teaching, conducting research individually or in a team and etc (mention your responsibilities)…… Working as a statistics lecturer needs deep knowledge of fundamental mathematics and experiences in advanced research of applied statistics. Even though my undergraduate programme has given me a strong background in the fundamentals of various mathematics especially statistics, this is not enough for me to be a professional lecturer. I have to continue my study to enrich my skills and broaden my knowledge.
Currently, our institution which one of the functions is to XXXX to the government of Indonesia, has formulated its Long Term Plan known as the XXX PLAN, which directed toward the establishment of the Integrated National XXX System. This plan is including the development of statistics in various fields such as economy, demography, agriculture, and health. It leads the need of statistician who expert in those fields. Today, there is no Master of Science in XXX in our institution. These circumstances persuade me to apply Master of Science in XXX under XXX Scholarship programme.
Master of Science in XXX is needed in Indonesia because of the following reasons:
- It will improve education in XXX and Indonesia in general, and strenghten the establishment of the Integrated National System
- I will fill the masters of XXX scarcity and strengthen the sustainable development of Indonesia.
Considering all factors above. I believe that the chosen study will benefit Indonesia in general
I consider myself to be a good candidate for XXX Scholarship because I am young, energetic, hardworking, visionary, and motivated person who believes that I can do something for the benefit of my country to whom I have been working. I did my best with all maximum efforts I could give for my institution. But this is not enough. Frankly, I am not satisfied yet with what I did. I believe that I can do much better if I am trained and developed through a master of science in Belgium.
