Writing a Scholarship Thank You Letter
Lets go over the basics of writing a scholarship thank you letter.
Its always a good idea to thank any person or organization that gives you a large sum of money.
A few tips...
Write Concisely: Any professional letter should get to the point quickly, and avoid superfluous content.
Check Grammar and Spelling: Donâ€™t give your donor any reason to regret giving you a scholarship. Double check your spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
Be Gracious: Your thank you letter should be sufficiently gracious. Youâ€™ve just been given a large sum of money. Donâ€™t ever imply that you were entitled to it.
Be Reassuring: One of the toughest things for scholarship donors, is the fact that they canâ€™t help everyone. If youâ€™ve been granted a scholarship, it means that someone else was denied.
So, do your best to reassure them that you were a good choice, that youâ€™ll work hard and honor all of the conditions of the scholarship.
