Scholarship Thank You Letters

Why should I write a thank you letter?

Scholarships are made possible by thoughtful people giving generously to invest in the future of students like you. It is vitally important that you take the time to say thank you for such an impactful gift. Hearing from you is very meaningful to donors. It allows them to get a glimpse of how their gift has made a difference in the life of a student. Taking the time to say “thanks” is also an important part of being a leader. Regardless of your future career, developing the habit and art of expressing sincere thanks will contribute to your lifelong success. You were chosen from among many applicants to receive this scholarship because of your qualities and abilities. A well-written letter reflects favorably on you, on the University, and on the committee who selected you. Students will receive an email in the fall with instructions on how to complete their scholarship thank you letter.
