Scholarship Acceptance

How the process works and what to do after


Because of the generous support of private donors and your accomplishments, you have been selected to receive a scholarship award from the College Liberal Arts or one of its departments.

It is always a pleasure to reward and recognize excellence in academic endeavors. Many outstanding students applied for scholarships, so fantastic job, recipient! We are incredibly proud of you.

The Importance of Thanking Your Donor

The College is fortunate to have many private donors who contribute generously to scholarships for our outstanding students.

Scholarships are funded by real people often in memory or in honor of a loved one or favorite professor. Therefore, it is very important to thank those who made your scholarship possible. Beyond the simple courtesy of this act, thank you letters often inspire increased scholarship funds from donors, which further benefits students like you.

When you receive a scholarship from the College of Liberal Arts you will be required to submit an online recipient survey that you will link to from AcademicWorks, as well as a photo of yourself (which upload in AcademicWorks).

Answers from your survey will be used to populate a thank you letter that the College will send to your donor(s). This "thank you" process is new for 2018-19 scholarship recipients. Yet as always, you will not receive your scholarship until you submit the required information.

If you receive more than one scholarship, you will need to follow these instructions.
