Mr. Brain Smith,
Stanford, Calif. 94305
Dear Sir/Madam/Mr. Smith, [称谓]
Professor Shirley Sanderson of your university said when she was visiting our college that Stanford might be able to provide scholarships for a limited number of students from China to pursue postgraduate studies there next term. Since I expect to receive my bachelor's degree in June, I would appreciate being considered a candidate. [第一段：引入/说明写信原委；或叙前谊]
As you will notice from the enclosed data sheet, I am especially interested in computer science. You might like to know that during the past year I took all my elective courses in this field and wrote my thesis on traffic free city centers with computers. My knowledge and practical command of English is adequate. I've passed TOEFL and GRE with flying colors. [第二段：此段为信的主体，提出有关建议，劝说，说明，申请，投诉，介绍；商榷/讨论；描绘/叙述；致谢，致歉等等]
I would be grateful if you could give me a favorable consideration of my application for a scholarship. [第三段：此段表达愿望/希冀，进一步要求，祝愿…]
I look forward to hearing from you. [结束语]
Very truly yours,[礼貌落款]
