thank you for your help.

Dear Sir or Madam
I write to apply for the Master of Public Policy under the XXX scholarship. This program is an opportunity for me to enrich my knowledge and professional outgrowth thereby contributing to the socioeconomic development, democracy and good governance as well as promotion of social justice in Ghana. It is my ambition to be admitted to this post graduate program in order to gain extensive competence for future academic research and professional work. I graduated in 2012 from the XXX, where I was granted Bachelor's Degree in Political Science with Psychology .

Ghana has evolved into a stable and mature democracy throughout the last two decades. The country continues to show good performance on democratic governance, arising from strong civil society activism, growing media pluralism and press freedom, and adherence to the tenets of rule of law. The 2012 worldwide governance indicator placed Ghana between the 50th and 60th percentile on political stability, government effectiveness and regulatory quality, rule of law, control of corruption and accountability. However, the country faces a countless number of social, economic and political problems stemming from policy deficiencies, gross economic mismanagement, and political and institutional corruption. Political leaders at the whelms of affairs only embark on policies that will propagate their populist agendas rather than policies that will seek to find lasting solutions to the problems that hinders Ghana's socioeconomic and political growth and development. To this end, there is the need for tomorrow's leaders of Ghana to have analytical knowledge and tools to formulate and implement cogent, viable, and results-oriented policies that will bring about accelerated growth and development in the country.




It is my goal to join the ranks of scholars, professionals and advocates of public policy, who are working tirelessly around the clock to find practical and lasting solutions to the problems stifling Ghana's goal and target of reaching high income economy and newly industrialized country status. Every country in the world faces some forms of social, economic and political problems. Creative and well educated people are the ones who will play a vital role in resolving these problems. My aim of pursuing a master degree in public policy is to gain analytic and practical knowledge in the field on international ground in order to be a part of the reform process in the development of my country. A Master In public policy from the xxx will be a step that will allow me to make an impact not only in the field of public policy and governance as a scholar, but it will endow me with abilities that will make a difference in people's lives and also sharpens my professional skills to be resourceful in organizations both public and private in the domestic and international arena. I have nurtured a strong passion to be in academia and as such, to pursue studies to the PhD level, and I am of the conviction that a master's degree in public policy will lay the necessary foundation required for the pursuit of higher academic knowledge.

I developed particular interest in the subject areas of public administration, international relations and comparative politics during my undergraduate studies for it to serve as a stepping stone to gaining wide range erudition in (comparative) public policy and political economy, so as to be able to employ comparative analysis and approaches to finding practical solutions to Ghana's developmental problems. In this regard, a top quality Master of Public Policy is almost 'a must', and in this respect, xxx is an obvious choice for me. It represents an essential stage of my education which complements well my previous studies and work, but it also opens a lot of new doors and provides opportunities for me to develop professionally and personally to achieve my career goals. My undergraduate studies, guided me in systematic researching, analytical thinking, and information evaluation. I gained a strong academic background in the fields of Public Policy Process in Ghana, Human Resource Development and Management, Politics and Bureaucracy in Africa, Public Finance Administration, Issues in Comparative Politics, and Political economy of Africa's development since independent. These courses have given me an appreciable foundation in public policy and have motivated me to undertake further studies in the field. As a public commission for the control and investigation of corruption, ensuring administrative justice (Ombudsman) and protection of human rights, my professional experience with the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) as an intern has exposed me to practical cases of corruption, social injustice, and administrative injustice and practical ways of solving such cases. My experience with CHRAJ has sharpened my interest on matters of social justice, democracy and good governance, peace and social development. My work as a Social Studies and Government teacher in Ejuraman Senior High School, has furnished me with foundational skill such as I may need in the pursuance of my academic career, a goal I yearn to achieve. The subjects I thought were very much about discourse on social, political and economic issues affecting my country. Also, my work experience as a teacher coupled with that from CHRAJ has embedded in me such skills as researching, communication, presentation, leadership, organization and time management; traits which are relevant in achieving academic excellence.




In conclusion, I would like to acknowledge that, I am eager to gain experience, improve my skills and broaden my understanding and knowledge on public policy and good governance. I am persuaded that taking part in this program offered by the xxx with its interdisciplinary approach, would contribute to my development as an expert of international repute in the best possible way. I hope to return to my Home country to start a career in academia or work as a research fellow with a think tank. The skills I may acquire through my studies will be an important asset in contributing to Ghana's development. Thank you very much for considering my application.
