Sample NOTE 5

(SDSU sample scholarship thank you note)


An engineering student explains to the donors that earning a scholarship inspires him to work harder and realize his true potential.

I am honored to be chosen for the College of Engineering Scholarship. Since enrolling at SDSU, I have seen the dedication and hard work that each and every student puts forth. I thank you for recognizing my own commitment to academic success. Earning a scholarship such as this inspires me to work harder and to continue realizing my true potential. This fall semester, I have also started a new job, which added an enormous time commitment to my schedule that would otherwise be used for academics. Scholarships like this enable me to concentrate on my studies, learning about the subjects I will dedicate my life to. Once again, I cannot thank you enough for this donation to my academic career.
