  • Are you using visualforce email template or just a visualforce with controller ?One can include logic in controller part as well as logic in view part of visualforce . – Mohith Shrivastava Nov 4 '13 at 11:00

public  class Treeconditionhelper {

  public string displaytext{get;set;}
  public Id urlid;

  public Treeconditionhelper(){


   //Assuming your query has fetched data here 
    Master_Application__c m=[Select Id,Interest_in_Merit_Scholarships__c,Scholarship_Decision__c from Master_Application__c  where id=:urlid]

      if(m.Scholarship_Decision__c=30 && m.Interest_in_Merit_Scholarships__c){
        }else if(m.Scholarship_Decision__c=40 && m.Interest_in_Merit_Scholarships__c){
       }//..continue the pattern



visualforce code

<p> <apex:outputtext value="{!displaytext}‌​" </p>

The above pattern may help you to achieve what you looking for .I recommend going through visualforce guide and visualforce workbook to gain more expertise

This is the purpose of the Case function. See the complete list of visualforce functions for more information. Below is an example of using the case function to display either "Display One", "Display Two", or "Display Three" depending on the value of Master_Application__c.Scholarship_Decision__c.

<apex:outputText value="{!CASE(Master_Application__c.Scholarship_Decision__c, "Value1", "Display One", "Value2", "Display Two", "Default Value")}" />
