Dear Dr. Davis:
I am writing to express my interest in the fellowship program at Educational Policy Institute at the
suggestion of Dr. Policy Professor. After several years in secondary education, I am pursuing a Master’s
of Science degree in Education Policy from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of
Education. As a result, I have the opportunity to combine my interest in education reform with a growing
set of analytical and research skills that I hope to leverage in policy work. Courses such as Foundations
of Urban Education, Program Evaluation and Policy Analysis, Education Finance Policy, and U.S. School
Policy and Reform have been very helpful in this regard.
In my previous experience as an math teacher and student advisor at Achieve High School, I grew in the
understanding of the plight of many students in underserved areas, especially as it relates to access to
information about STEM careers. Based on this exposure, I became interested in utilizing solid analysis
to inform education policy as well as the program implementation that emerges from it. Currently, I am
serving as a research assistant for a professor who is conducting a study on how various Head Start
programs correlate with academic achievement of middle school students.
I greatly appreciate the action research framework that Educational Policy Institute has designed and I
am eager to develop my skills in education policy analysis over the next two years. I would welcome the
opportunity to meet with you personally to discuss my qualifications further. Feel free to contact me at
215-222-3333 or dstudent@gse.upenn.edu. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,
David Student
