    Good evening. My name is Nandik Ismael Joress. I do English Law at the University of Soa, Cameroon. I’m in level 3 respectively. However, due to my incapacity to provide tuition fees and other expenses from International Student by Colorado University, am here to plead for a scholarship that might enable me to further my law studies in your respective University. It has always been my great passion to further my studies in your respective institution, but anytime I think of money, am confused. I hope you accept my sincere demand.
