Many Pepperdine University scholarships are funded through the generosity of private donors and foundations. These scholarships are awarded annually, provided that funds are made available from the donors. Historically, student thank you letters have helped to ensure continued scholarship funding from donors and foundations.
The Office of Financial Assistance requests these letters every Fall semester from Seaver College recipients of certain scholarships. The Designated Accounts Office works in conjunction with Financial Assistance to ensure that the appropriate letters are received from the recipients and forwarded to the donors.
