Scholarship Thank You Letter

Writing a thank you letter for a scholarship is good etiquette, just as writing a thank you when receiving a gift.

If the letter is being sent as a hard copy, then it should be in the proper business format, otherwise, if the letter is being emailed, it should have an appropriate subject line and proper grammar.

How to Write
  1. Thank them, be sure to include the name of the scholarship and time frame that you'll be benefiting from the scholarship.
  2. Tell them about yourself. You can include information about your school/major, what you plan on doing after you graduate, how the scholarship will help you, financial/personal struggles, etc.
  3. Thank them again.
