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. 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.
