I am applying for a fellowship available to Yale Asian undergraduate students that will enable me to work while being fully paid for by a $X,XXX grant to your organization with the understanding that you would use the grant funds to pay me a stipend. The requirement is that we have a mutually agreed upon scope of work.
I would like to work with your organization on (project name/description) and (how it will benefit organization). This fellowship program allows the student to design a project, provided that the project is hosted by a non-profit organization that serves Asian Americans. I hope your organization will consider hosting my project because (describe the connection between your project and the mission of the organization as described on the organization website).
I have included a project proposal for your review.
Project proposal: 1) goal, 2) who will be involved, if anyone besides you, 3) your specific skills or educational background that make you qualified to do this project, 4) what kind of supervision or mentoring you would like to have from the host organization, 5) any costs that the organization would incur to host your project, 6) the project’s benefit to the host organization
