Scholarships can be found anywhere, with any major University, College, or institution. Often funded by global and regional organizations that support talents to study in any country. Due to its nature, distance learning scholarships nowadays, during the global pandemic, are a great alternative if you pursue an international study or career, wherever you may be.

How do you write a thank you letter for a University or College scholarship?

When you are preparing an official handwritten or typed thank you for a letter, it's good to emphasize the advantage this scholarship will give you, and you can show gratitude. Be sure that the letter is clean, neat, and legible. The use of a thank you card, personal stationery, or plain sheet alternatively is also acceptable. You may address this message of thanks to the Donor Organization or Financial Aid Office and you can follow this format:

First paragraph: State the purpose of your letter.

  • I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you for making the {{Name of Scholarship}} possible.
  • I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor and I am deeply appreciative of your support.
