  4. STATEMENT OF MOTIVATION
    My name is Haileslassie Gebremeskel I am an Ethiopian young gay graduated with Bachelor Science in Horticulture on June 27, 2007 G.C form Jimma University. After I had been graduated I worked in ministry of agriculture and rural development for the last three years. But at this time I am working in Ethiopian Institute Agricultural Research, Wondo Genet Agricultural Research Center under the Crop Research Process as Aromatic, Medicinal and Biofuel plants case team coordinator and junior researcher particularly focusing on (collection of new variety from the wild, Optimization of agronomic for cultivation, Recommended fertilizer and pesticide use, Development of fast growing varieties with disease tolerance, high yield(high herbage yield and essential oil content), producing plant that prevent, alleviate and cure human health safely than the synthetic once, early maturing, Determination of maturity and time of harvesting, Number of economically viable harvests and methods of harvesting) which are proposed as the main production aspect of those projects conducting by the institution. I tried to use all my effort to prepare relevant documents for the different organization and institution including manual and scientific paper (as published in Journal of Medicinal Aromatic plant Science and biotechnology, Japan). For me, it is not enough to explore my potential that is why I summon this opportunity to pursue my post graduate studies. My country Ethiopia is one of the developing countries in Africa which has numerous endemic and exotic Cereal and Horticultural plants still unresearched. Despite the country has many wild Cereal and Horticultural plants, still now is it not benefited from them. Among constraints, wisely utilization of genetic resources due to lack of skilled human power is a major problem that plant breeding in the country.
    This calls up on qualified Cereal and Horticultural plants that can be in charge of the productivity. My interest towards Horticulture department initiated me to apply in your University. Most undeveloped countries loose the profit from the breeding part of Cereal and Horticultural plants due to many problems. If I get the chance to continue my postgraduate study it will be fantastic to motivate in breeding Cereal and Horticultural plants in the country.

    With best regards
    Haileslassie Gebremeskel

  11. NAME: TEMESGEN DESTA
    COUNTRY: ETHIOPIA
    PROGRAMME: Masters Scholarship in GOVERNANCE & DEVELOPMENT
    REASONS FOR A (Name of programs) SCHOLARSHIP
    First I would like to express my appreciation for this opportunity to apply for Masters Scholarship in GOVERNANCE & DEVELOPMENT. I am a graduate of ADAMA UNIVERSITY IN ETHIOPIA holding a bachelor degree in BUSINESS EDUCTION wth specialization of PURCHASING AND SUPPLY MANAGEMENT, First Class Honours. With the background knowledge I have in PURCHASING AND SUPPLY MANAGEMENT, I strongly feel that a master course in Masters Scholarship GOVERNANCE & DEVELOPMENT will be very relevant to my practice back here in my country ETHIOPIA. I plan to work with research based groups development & related 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 ETHIOPIA or elsewhere as I lack the necessary funds. More over, my parents are socially minority group in ETHIOPIA the so called shinasha & too poor family; they could not able to afford me the fees for any activity to pursue further. Thus, I need financial aid to process the scholarship. I would be grateful to be provided with sponsorship to further my education and build a career and Belgiumscholarship 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 BELGIUM 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 Belgiumto garner a wealth of ideas that will apply when I return to my country and at the same time contribute to better BELGIUM with my country ETHIOPIA.
    Once again I am grateful for considering my application and I look forward to a favourable reply.

    Dear Sir/ Madam,
    Things we do in life often have measurable results but the extent of their impact is often difficult to quantify. The MBA Scholarship, which you have so generously donated to the
    College of Business, has had an impact upon me far beyond the obvious and measurable
    Financial help.
    This year, as a senior majoring in MBA, I am already feeling nostalgic. I have begun to
    Wonder, “How can I give back to this place that has given me so much?” Your gift serves as an Example of the impact I would like to have beyond my graduation.
    In receiving this scholarship, I am touched not only by your generosity but also by our shared
    Desire to give back to this great college. You have eased my financial burden but equally
    Important, if not more so, you have allowed me an opportunity to see the impact such a gift has on a student’s point-of-view. I feel a kinship and camaraderie with your husband, a man whom I never had the opportunity to meet, because we have a shared experience. I feel pride in being selected to receive this gift. I feel a responsibility to uphold the expectations that accompany such an honor. And, I feel an excitement to some day be in your position, giving back to the institution that has helped builds the foundation for the rest of my life. This summer, I will begin my career in your steamed university. As I move to the next phase of my life, I will remain strongly tied to my roots here at the College of Business
    and the people, like yourself, who have helped shape my collegiate experience.

    As I told you I scored nine “A” and only one “B” out of ten courses of MBA in Addis Ababa extension center from IICM University Florida- U.S.A, this is outstanding grade as my college wrote to me. Since I have no paying capacity, I cut or stopped my learning program at last month.
    Please, I have prepared an answer for your essay question, can I send the answers of essay question trough this mailing adress?
    Thank you for your gift and the “immeasurable” impact it has had on me.
    Sincerely,
    Yours sincerely, / faithfully
