Sample NOTE 1

(SDSU sample scholarship thank you note)

A management information systems student sends a thank you note to the organization that provided his scholarship, highlighting the importance of their work.

Dear Members of the American Production and Inventory Control Society,

It is such an honor to receive the A.P.I.C.S. scholarship this year. I greatly appreciate your financial assistance as I pursue my final year at San Diego State University. Amidst any challenges, I have always put my education first, and I appreciate the work that A.P.I.C.S. does to increase educational resources and encourage excellence in the workplace.

As I near the finish line of my bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems, I strive to find work that both uses my expertise and gives back to my community. This summer, I have been interning with a company to help build a COVID-19 contact trace software. This fall, we hope to implement it into schools, businesses, and anywhere else that lives can be saved. I realize that achieving amazing and meaningful job opportunities like these are only possible with the help of others along the way: my parents, my professors, my mentors, and generous donors such as A.P.I.C.S. Thank you so much for helping me focus on my education while I reach for new heights this year.
