Student Thank You Letter Information

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 and possible supplemental request(s) before the Fall semester begins and throughout the school year from Seaver College recipients of certain scholarships. The Advancement Office works in conjunction with Financial Assistance to ensure that the appropriate letters and supplemental request(s) are received from the recipients and forwarded to the donors.


Did you submit your letter, but it hasn't been removed from your To Do List? Was it less than 5 business days ago?

Please be patient with us, as it may take some time to process documentation during our high-volume time of year.

Did you send it from your Pepperdine email?

Do not send us your Thank You Letter via email! The Thank You Letter process is solely an online submission via our online scholarship management system. You will receive an email link for further instructions when awarded.


Was your letter an appropriate length and free of grammatical errors?

If not, you have not completed the requirement and may be asked to resubmit the letter which will impede fund disbursement! Please follow the guidelines.
