Sample Letter 3

(SDSU sample scholarship thank you letter)


Dear Trustees of the Jonathan Giver Scholarship:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of the Jonathan Giver Scholarship for Academic Excellence.  As one of this year’s recipients, I am grateful for the opportunities this award will provide me. I rely on financial aid, grants and student loans to help finance my education.  Receiving this scholarship will help reduce my financial burdens and provide assistance for me as I continue pursuing my education.

Attending San Diego State University has always been my dream. My mother and father met at SDSU and growing up, we often came to campus to attend football and basketball games.  I am from Bear Valley, CA, and graduated from Bear Valley High School with honors.  I am a member of Gamma Sigma Alpha sorority, and I participate in the SDSU Women’s Soccer Sports Club.  I am also involved with the Journalism Club and I work part-time at Aztec Shops Book Store.  Upon completion of my degree I will pursue a career in investigative news reporting.

Once again, thank you for supporting the students of San Diego State University.

Your generosity truly makes a difference.


Miriam P. Almstead
