Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Scholarship



I hereby apply for entrance to the Master’s programme in Integrated Water Resources Management for the 2015/16 academic year. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in

Environmental Engineering  in 2012. My degree focuses on sustainable protection and management of air, water, land and energy resources.

I am currently working with National Water and Sewerage Corporation a leading water organization in the country which is in-charge of providing water and sewerage services to areas entrusted to it, as an Engineer on prepaid meters which are one of the many technologies that help in ensuring effective water management.

During my studies, I did my internships with Ministry  and  Project on water and sanitation projects where I got experience in protecting spring water sources, construction of gravity flow scheme and different sanitation facilities, sensitizing communities about Safe Water Chain, spear headed taking water samples for water quality analysis tests from different water sources. This therefore attributed to my interest in further developing my career in the water and sanitation sector. This later influenced my decision to do an internship programme on a Water, Sanitation and Hygiene project in Rural Eastern  where I participated in conducting baseline surveys, preparation and implementation of the different projects.

According to the  Ministry Sector Performance report, in 2011 access to "safe water" was 66% while access to improved sanitation was 70% in rural areas and 81% in urban areas.With water being a key driver of economic and social development, it also has a basic function in maintaining the integrity of the natural environment. However water is only one of the numerous vital natural resources and it is imperative that water issues are not considered in isolation.Proper Sanitation is equally important if not vital for the health of the society members. This is important for the prevention of water-borne diseases. The challenges facing water managers across the world increasingly require leaders able to cross social, environmental and technological boundaries, to combine disciplinary knowledge and to use

theory to inform effective water management. I will therefore be able to contribute significantly to a viable and sustainable water resources and sanitation management in my country with the knowledge acquired from this Master’s programme.

I am interested in specializing in Water Supply and Sanitation . With the knowledge obtained from this particular specialization, I will be able to contribute to water supply, waste water management and water quality services provided by National Water and Sewerage Corporation to my fellow Ugandan’s as it strives to reach 100% coverage.

Therefore I would be honored if you decide to accept my candidateship. Thank you in advance for considering my application. I look forward to your positive response.
