Your scholarship is made possible each year thanks to the private support of Southeast Missouri State University's friends and alumni. Many of these donors continue to give to scholarship endowments because they know their gifts are important to our students. A personal note of thanks from scholarship recipients reinforces the importance of the donor's investment in Southeast and keeps them connected with the campus community. Thank you for recognizing the generosity of our donors, and the benefit their generosity provides to you as well as future award recipients. The tips provided below will assist you as you prepare your thank you letter.
