Thank You Letter Instructions

Part of your financial assistance is funded through the generosity of private donors and Pepperdine University. You are required to write a Thank You Letter to the donor(s).

First time award recipients will receive an email with a link to accept the award within our scholarship website at pepperdine.academicworks.com. Once the award is accepted, you will receive another email with the link to complete your Thank You Letter and other possible supplemental request(s).

Renewal award recipients will receive an email with a link to complete the Thank You Letter and supplemental request in mid-August. Please feel free to contact the Office of Financial Assistance at finaid2@pepperdine.edu after August 15 if you have not received the email with the link to complete the Thank You Letter and other possible supplemental request(s).

If you are concerned about having enough time to write your letter, please compose it in advance. Then when you receive the email with the link you will copy the letter into the website and upload your photo.

Failure to submit your completed Thank You Letter(s) will result in placing your scholarship in drafted status and may delay the disbursements(s). Review the guidelines  for the Thank You Letter and resubmit your letter after corrections have been made.
