Your thank you letter is a reflection of you and the College of New Caledonia. Expressing genuine gratitude is very powerful.
Thank You Letter Tips:
If you are selected for a scholarship or bursary it is because your personal qualities and academic achievements stood above all other applicants. Students at CNC are required to provide a typed (or hand written card) thank you letter confirming that this award was important enough to you to take the time to present yourself in a professional manner.
Your thank you letter should include a short story of why you choose your program and career path. Your passion for learning, your future aspirations and where you wish to practice your profession are meaningful items to include. Take some time to do this well and do the best you can.
Donors are extremely important to CNC – they are generous and thoughtful people who have given unselfishly to support our students in achieving their educational goals. Your thank you letter reminds them why they gave and is an important element of securing their continuing gifts for other students.
Please Do Not use sample donor letters available from various websites. We see them too!
