    • BCH Department Scholarship Coordinator: BCH Dean’s Office, Bldg. 39, Room 3031 
    • BCH School of Nursing Scholarship Coordinator: SON Office, Bldg. 39A, Room 3090 
     
  • 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 completed and submitted electronically (Word format only), by e-mailing them to cohscholarships@unf.edu, by 5 p.m. on Friday, February 24, 2017. All thank you letters will be mailed to the donors 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. Please be sure to check your e-mail regularly for updates about the event.

         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 your 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.
