Criteria and Suggestions
As indicated in your Scholarship Offer, a thank-you letter is a requirement for receiving your scholarship at Clayton State College. Scholarship donors are generous and caring people who unselfishly give to support the educational pursuits of students like you. Receiving a thank-you letter from a student lets the donor know that the scholarship was greatly appreciated.
As a guide to help you write your thank-you letter, we have provided you with criteria and suggestions on what to include in your letter. While we prefer that you follow the thank-you letter suggestions, they are not meant to restrict you in writing your letter.
Criteria for your thank-you letter:
When you are ready to upload your thank you letter, log back into https://clayton.academicworks.com and click on the scholarship name in the “Needs Attention” section.
