  1. Dear sir/madam,. I am young guy from Ethiopia. I obtain Diploma in
    Agriculture from Adama Science and technology University with GPA of
    Dear sir4.0 out of 4.0. I have 2 years of work experience in
    technical assistant at Dilla University, School of Agriculture.
    meanwhile; i have great interest to have my Bachelor degree in
    Agricultural related fields. But to realize my interest my financial
    status is constraint

    You know that industrialized nations have emitted for more greenhouse
    gas emissions. In contradictory developing countries due to small
    number of professional in Agriculture there is inadequate agricultural
    productivity in our country .Our country Ethiopia is now in jumping
    one step from a line with industrialized countries. So what needs at
    first? It’s doubtless as it is professional of Agricultural Sciences.
    Considering all factor above, I believe that if I am trained through
    undergraduate scholarship in Agricultural science I can do my best
    with all maximum efforts for the benefit of my country to whom I have
    been working. I look forward to a favorable reply to bring my dream in
    to reality. I believe it will come. Thanks.
