  • Student award recipients will receive a scholarship acceptance letter via e-mail. This letter should be signed and turned into the CCB Dean's Office, 42/2010 immediately. 
  • Write and submit a donor thank you letter: students can review the thank you letter guidelines and a sample thank you letter template below. Letters should be typed, signed in ink and submitted in person to the Dean's office. Letters will be mailed directly to the donor(s) from the Dean's office. Please see helpful tips below for more info.
  • Attend a scholarship reception event: students should plan to attend a scholarship reception event. These dates and times will be shared with the students by the Dean's office. This event will provide the students an opportunity to meet with the donor(s) and express their gratitude in person.

Scholarship Thank You Letter Tips

Make an impact: Your thank you letter is very important to the donor! IT provides you with an opportunity to share you own personal story as well as a way to express your gratitude for the award.

 

Make it your own: Use the sample thank you letter template as a guide, but please share your own story and do not copy the wording in the example. The letter does not have to be long, but it should be heartfelt.

 

Write professionally: You want to make a good impression! Have a friend or family member read your letter for revisions and feedback before submitting it to the Dean's Office. Letters that contain many writing and grammatical errors will be returned to the student for correction. This could delay getting your letter to the donor.
