    Is "with" necessary?

    Hi, do we need "with" in the following sentences?

    He has promised to fund me with $1500 per month.

    The university offered me with an admission letter.

    Thank you very much.
    By the way, would you please point out any errors in the above sentences which are part of my essay?

    Hi wang.cupid

    As a NES, but not a reacher, I would have no problem with your first sentence (He has promised to fund me with $1500 per month).

    Inclusion of the word "with" in your second sentence (The university offered me with an admission letter) tends to suggest that the university is offering "me with an admission letter" to someone else! I would recommend leaving out the word "with" in this case.

    Hope this helps
