    用Motivation。

    Motivation在申請方面是常見字。

    見:

    "A cover letter or covering letter or motivation letter or motivational letter or letter of motivation is a letter of introduction attached to, or accompanying another document such as a résumé or curriculum vitae. Many US MBA Schools, such as MIT and Harvard, request a cover letter as part of their admission application"

    In this case, "motivation" is more suitable than "motive".

    Motivation is the driving force behind you for doing something persistently, the incentive for long-lasting diehard devotion to school works.

    while "motive" addresses specifically the state-of-mind at that particular moment, for instance the motive of killing or stealing.
