Previously I had posted an article about Writing Email to Professor, many students had asked for an email template.

Here’s one email template you can use to contact professor to express your interest to his research and maybe that will lead graduate school admission with scholarship.

You may have to customize the email based on the professor’s research interest and your need.  Don’t expect to get reply from all the professors.

Email to Professor Template

Dear Professor or Dear Dr.Last Name,

My name is /First Name/ and I am a current student at /University or College Name/ . As part of my Undergraduate project work with Professor Dr.XYZ implementing x y and z methods using technologies, ….

I am contacting you because I’m applying to programs in Major this . My research interests are in A, B, and C…

From your web page I saw that that you have done research on project x and y. Because of our similar interests, your lab is one of the ones I am intrigued by at Graduate University. If you will be accepting any students into your lab for the 2007-2008 year? I’d be interested in hearing more about your particular lab and getting in touch with some of your current students.

If not, can you recommend other professors with similar interests who will be accepting students? If you are accepting new students, Please feel free to direct me towards your most recent research (manuscripts, etc) as well.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Best Wishes,
You.
