  1. Dear Sir/Madame,

    Thanks for this opportunity. My name is Aaron Collins. I am very desirous to obtain a master education overseas. I am a Liberian and would be glad to be a beneficiary of your government’s scholarship placement this year.

    However, with Liberia being an English speaking country, do I need to show any proof of my proficiency in English? If that is the case, is it possible for you to administer such English online?

    Respectfully yours,

    Aaron Collins
