Sample letter to a friend congratulating him on his winning scholarship

My dear,

I was a great pleasure to be informed that you have won a scholarship of Rs. 10000 p.m. by appearing in the competitive examination for the award of scholarships from amongst those who have passed the High School Examination. Please accept my hearty congratulations.

I was sorry when I learnt in June last that you failed to win a position amongst the first ten students in the High School Examination. You have now made ample amends for it by winning a scholarship. Your merit has at last been recognized.

Dear friend, with this great success the whole field of University education is open before you. I am sure you will take advantage of it and make your mark in life. May God grant you further success in life!

With my sincere well wishes,

Your sincere friend,

Name.
