What should you write?

  • Introduce yourself and the award(s) you received
  • Thank our donors at the start and end of your letter
  • Explain how their support has made a positive impact in your life
  • Help the donor get to know you by sharing your interests, hobbies and Ambrose experience

Consider what you can write about?

  • What do you hope to do with your Ambrose education? What's your dream?
  • How has this financial assistance helped you achieve your goals?
  • What financial barriers did the assistance help you overcome?
  • Did it allow you to volunteer or travel for academic purposes?
  • What volunteer or campus organizations are you involved with?
  • Why did you decide to study at Ambrose?
  • What are some recent accomplishments or other Ambrose highlights you can share?

Please remember:

  • Grammar and spelling should be checked and correct – it is, after all, an academic award.
  • Be genuine and sincere in the tone of your thank you letter.
  • Show your personality. The formality remains, but you are now an appreciative recipient, rather than a prospective candidate. There is nothing wrong with acknowledging your enthusiasm and excitement about winning the scholarship.
  • Submit your letter in a business-type structure.
  • Above all, convey your message of thanks clearly and somewhat concisely.

If you would like a thank card to write in, please see the Financial Aid office.
