Student Thank You Letter/Supplemental Request
Many Pepperdine University scholarships are funded through the generosity of private donors and foundations. These scholarships are awarded annually, subject to donor fund availability. Historically, student thank-you letters and/or any supplemental information requests have helped to ensure continued scholarship funding from donors and foundations.
By mid-July, the Office of Financial Assistance will send an email to recipients of scholarships that require documentation. The email will provide a link to complete the requests before the Fall semester begins (and throughout the school year as needed). Your submitted documents will be forwarded to the Advancement Office, which will ensure that the appropriate letters and/or supplemental request(s) are forwarded to the donors.
Priority deadline to submit your thank you letter/supplemental request(s) for renewable scholarships is August 10.
If you are awarded a scholarship after the priority deadline, please submit your letter as soon as you receive your link with instructions. Your scholarship will not disburse until your thank you letter and/or supplemental request(s) is complete. If not submitted, your scholarship is subject to cancellation.
I have submitted my Thank You Letter but it is still showing on my "To-Do List."
If you submitted your letter and it has been more than 5 business days, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your patience, as it may take some time to process documentation during our high-volume time of year.
I emailed my thank you letter, but it is still showing on my "To-Do List."
Thank you letters and/or supplemental request(s) cannot be accepted via email! The thank you letter and supplemental request process is solely an online submission via our scholarship platform. Please follow the instructions provided in the email that you received from our office.
I am not sure how to write the thank you letter. What do I need to include?
View this link with guidelines to help you compose your letter. You will be asked to resubmit the letter through the scholarship platform if it does not meet the criteria listed. This may impede the funds disbursing timely on your account. If you need help, visit the Writing Center at Payson Library for assistance.
Where can I find the donor's name for my letter salutation?
You will find the salutation information on the top left side of the page when you use the link to enter the scholarship platform.
