[Ms./Mrs./Mr. Full name],
Dear [Ms./Mrs./Mr. Last name],
I am writing to inform you of my intention to pursue the International Educational Administration and Policy Analysis (IEAPA) Master's Program offered by your school.
I am applying to the IEAPA Master's Program as I intend to eventually become an educational planning researcher.
I have more than the required four quarters of course work, and have already completed the required general and education & development courses, including Applied Research Methods in Comparative Education I, II, III, and IV and the Politics of International Cooperation in Education.
Both my parents are educational planning researchers for the UNESCO and have inspired me to embrace the subject without imposing their own views or aspirations.
I already feel like a veteran of educational planning as I have attended a number of educational planning seminars . . . assisted my parents in their research work . . . authored and self-published Educational Planning and the Developing World: What the BRIC Nations Can Teach the West . . . and served as an educational planning teaching assistant at California's International Educational Planning Foundation.
I also have native fluency in Portuguese, Russian and Mandarin.
I wish to enroll in your school's IEAPA Master's Program because several educational planning veterans that I have had the privilege to know consider it one of the best tracks of its kind in the nation.
I look forward to answering any questions that you may have and/or providing any additional information you may need to process my application.
Thank you for considering me for your IEAPA Master's Program.
