  19. 19. You Can Do It 2010 Sponsor Invitation Letter Subject: Invitation to provide sponsorship for USGuide’s annual “You Can Do It” conference To Whom It May Concern, First of all, thank you for your interest in the "You Can Do It" 2010 conference. By writing this letter, we want to bring to you the story and the reasons behind USGuide’s decision to organize “You Can Do It” and we hope that you will decide to join us in making this meaningful event happen. As a group of individuals who successfully navigated through the process of applying for graduate studies abroad and securing sufficient financing for our education, we believe that the main barrier between aspirant students in Vietnam and a higher education abroad today is informational, not financial. The shortage of reliable information and realistic, honest advice has severely limited the ability of many otherwise qualified candidates to reach out to the plentiful existing opportunities. From USGuide’s first days, one of our foremost goals has been to utilize our own experiences to address that shortage in a meaningful way. Since its beginning three years ago, “You Can Do It” has built upon that foundation and become one of the most significant events that USGuide organizes for and shares with the local community. We welcome everyone who is in the process of researching information and opportunities to study at the graduate level in the US (and increasingly in other developed countries around the world), provide them with information and advice and work to help them better define their goals, refine their plans and identify important sources of opportunities. Therein also lies USGuide’s aspiration to bring together, through this annual gathering of likeminded peers, the Vietnamese communities of current and prospective students as well as alumni in Vietnam and around the world; and together, begin to contribute to the country’s future. “US Education- Towards a Future” is the chosen theme for “You Can Do It” 2010 , aimed at the oriented- study and opportunities the applicants could gain after studying in U.S through a big conference onU.S Education and 2 sub- conferences on Master and PhD. For this to happen, we need your support. We have designed three sponsorship packages for your convenience, with values ranging from VND30,000,000 to VND80,000,000. The details and benefits of these packages are included in our sponsorship proposal for your review. Again, we thank you for your interest and consideration. “You Can Do It” will take place on July 17th this summer. We at USGuide hope that we will have the honor of having you there with us. Yours Sincerely, “You Can Do It” 2009, Organization Board
