Scholarship recipients receive a lesson in etiquette

Tuesday, June 07, 2011
You might have your sights set on a specific college, only to get discouraged when you see the cost of tuition. Fear not , because scholarships can provide you with the financial assistance you need to realize your higher education dream.

If you receive one of these awards, you might want to brush up on your social etiquette.

For instance, one school's advancement office is asking scholarship recipients to write thank-you notes to their awards' benefactors, USA Today reports. Students do not receive their financial assistance until their letters are in the mail.

The news source states that many colleges and universities encourage scholarship recipients to show their appreciation toward those who made the financial donations.

In the electronic age, you might wonder who still writes and receives handwritten letters. Although many people might be more comfortable tweeting thank you notes, composing a letter can actually be a valuable communication skill. Sure, an email is quick and efficient, but a handwritten note shows that you care enough to devote time to the task. Who knows, it might even open some doors to future opportunities.

According to, you do not have to be an “A” student to take advantage of scholarship opportunities. Many of these awards also recognize qualities that are unrelated to academic achievements such as athletics or community service. ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800525269-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
