This is a required part of receiving an endowment! The endowed scholarships are funded through generous contributions made by our alumni, industry partners and friends of the university. It is important to acknowledge those contributions that help ease the financial burden of attending college for so many students.
Scholarship donors are interested in learning about the students they support. The goal of a thank you letter to your donor is to thank them for the generous contribution to your education and to share a little about yourself so that your donors can learn about you. Download a sample letter (pdf).
