Sample Letter 4

(SDSU sample scholarship thank you letter)


Mr. David Gordon
Managing Director
San Diego Board of Trade

Dear Mr. Gordon:

I want to thank you and the San Diego Board of Trade (SDBOT) for sponsoring and funding scholarships at San Diego State University (SDSU). As this year's recipient of the “San Diego Board of Trade Admission Scholarship in Commerce and Management,” I wish to express my thanks to you and your organization for your generosity and for looking out for business students, such as myself, who are in financial need.

I knew that by selecting SDSU I was already headed for a great future, supplemented with an enriching education.  This scholarship award, thanks to the kindness of the Board, will only further assist in achieving my education and career goals, and increase my chances of success.  Without a doubt, this award will prove to be extremely valuable for me, helping to reduce the financial burdens of pursuing a degree in Business Administration.

I hope to be able to contribute to the business community of San Diego with an internship next summer and business career in San Diego after I graduate.

Once again, I want to thank you for the San Diego Board of Trade’s generosity and kind spirit in funding this scholarship, which has provided support and encouragement for both my family and me. I would also appreciate if you would please convey my deep thanks to the other members of the Board. As a reader of your publication, I have seen the various fundraising events the Board hosts to provide students like me, assistance with their postsecondary education.  I thank you for your kindness and the SDBOT’s community activities that are held in support of SDSU students.

I hope to become an individual that makes your institution proud, epitomizing all of the values your organization stands for and by which it has created its highly-regarded reputation.

With sincere thanks,

Janus Jones
