    I do have a dream which was grown up within me starting from my high school age in which I can play roles significant to my country (at least) and even to the world concerning Biodiversity protection and control of environmental problems such as pollution and spread of diseases. For this purpose I selected Biology as my major field of study in the beginning of my higher institute (college) study. In order to get my dream come true and widen my action to the levels of country, continent and world wide I have to grow first my selves educational Level to masters, PhD and above positions. Despite these I was happen to work (teach) in remote area for longer time where no one was fortunate to get his/her MSc education. Now your scholarship is coming to become my dream hope window in which financial aids are provided to me. I hope your master’s scholarship studies will equip me with the knowledge and skills of dealing with biodiversity and environmental problems. In my return to my country I will create conditions in which the society will get itself directly responsible for him selves’ environmental problems and biodiversity protection. As I am from tropical country (Ethiopia) which is rich in biodiversity; I would like to take responsibility of minimizing man`s unwise activity against biodiversity. In my country there are greater than nine national parks which are homes for numerous living species. The growing human population in my country is exerting its negative effect on wild life in many ways and these will also be my point of attention in my return to my country. After my study I will search, create cooperation, and regular connection with both governmental and non-governmental bodies that has similar interest, dream and willingness with me. Through these bodies support I will grow my capacity towards my dream achievement. I strongly believe in that there will come time when your organization that grown up me with this scholarship could get blessed by me and my colleagues in the achievement of my wide dream. With no hesitation my dream will come true.

    Just now I am looking for tuition fee covered Biology MSc scholarship. Thank you for your understanding and help.

    For those of us in Africa, putting a condition such as you must have an offer of admission before you are qualify for scholarship is a big problem. some of us cannot afford the application fees charge by some universities, and if we do, we don't know how to go about the payment. so i suggest that the scholarship cover that aspect too. thank
