I have no idea what to do with this but I will apply. This could be the difference of me making it and not.

I would thoroughly appreciate this experience. I am very interested in the life of politics. My goal for college is to study History, Law and English. I feel this would be a great way to start. Your consideration in granting me this scholarship is greatly appreciated.
