Thank You Letters

All students who receive a Foundation (donor-funded) scholarship will be required to write a thank you letter to the donor(s) of the scholarship. All letters must be completed online within ScholarWeb.

Why are thank you letters required?

Most of the scholarships available at Tennessee Tech University are made possible by generous contributions from donors who believe in the importance of a college education and want to invest in the future of Tennessee Tech students. By writing a thank you letter, you demonstrate that you are the kind of student they can be proud to support. Hearing from scholarship recipients is also very meaningful to donors. It allows them to obtain a glimpse of how the gift has made a difference in the life of a student. Your words remind donors of the impact of their scholarship gift, and many of them continue to give additional scholarship funds because they know their gifts are deeply appreciated and that they are helping deserving students realize their potential.
