Thank You Profiles for Named Scholarships and Grants

Drexel University receives financial contributions from both individuals and organizations that are used as both scholarships and grants for students.

In order to show donors the impact of their contributions, Drexel asks that any student who receives money from a donated fund complete a Thank You Profile. You will receive an e-mail notification from Drexel Central should you receive an award that requires a Thank You Profile be submitted; you will also be able to view the outstanding requirement in your DrexelOne account.

We also ask that you submit a recent photograph of yourself with your Thank You Profile that can be provided to the donor. If you do not submit a recent photograph of yourself, Drexel will use your Dragon Card photograph on file.

Please note that awards will not pay to a student's account until the Thank You Profile and photograph have been received by Drexel Central.
