When wrapping up an application in English, I like to conclude with the sentence "Thank you for considering my application".

I am now writing a Masters application to an Italian University, and I would like to do something similar.

Is there a standard turn of phrase in Italian corresponding to the English "Thank you for considering my application"?

    @DaG Translation requests are indeed off-topic, but I think this question could be easily rephrased as asking for a customary formula in Italian correspondence, which should be perfectly on topic. – Denis Nardin Feb 27 '18 at 13:28

    @DaG The main difference for me is that those expressions are highly ritualized and so it is more "find a good Italian equivalent for this word" than "translate this paragraph", I (perhaps mistakenly) believed that the second case was off topic, not so the first. – Denis Nardin Feb 27 '18 at 13:53

    A generic common courtesy phrase could be "La ringrazio per la cortese attenzione". In this specific case maybe: "La ringrazio per la cortese attenzione nei riguardi della mia candidatura" – Riccardo De Contardi Feb 27 '18 at 14:00

A generic common courtesy phrase that could be added as conclusion could be

"La ringrazio per la cortese attenzione."

In this specific case I think I would write:

"La ringrazio per la cortese attenzione nei riguardi della mia candidatura."
