Once You Receive a Scholarship, Say Thank You

They typically ask for nothing in return, but receiving a well-written thank you letter lets the donor know that the scholarship received was greatly appreciated. Your letter reminds them why they gave in the first place and can help secure continuing gifts for other students.
