How to Write a Thank You Letter for a Scholarship

Writing a thank you letter for a scholarship is a great way to show you appreciate how the scholarship will help you pay for school.  To write the letter, simply express your gratitude for being selected and for the opportunity to participate in the scholarship.  You can also share how the money will help you pay for school and how much winning the scholarship means to you. Writing a thank you letter shows the scholarship decision makers that they selected the right person and the money they are awarding will truly help make a difference in your life. Also, if your scholarship is renewable, a thank you letter or annual update may be required to receive the scholarship for a subsequent year.
