Scholarship Thank-You Profile Requirements

Scholarships and grants at Drexel University are possible partly due to the generosity of others — people or groups who have chosen to support students by providing financial aid.

Drexel asks recipients of these funds to submit a thank-you letter online as a way to thank donors for their generosity. Any student asked to complete the profile will see the requirement listed on DrexelOne.

How to Submit Your Thank-You Profile

Letter Guidelines

  • Write your letter in complete, grammatically correct sentences.
  • Your letter should be between 150 words (half a page) and 300 words (full page) long.
  • Begin by thanking the donor for their support.
  • Explain why the scholarship is important to you and the impact it has on you.
  • Share some information about your Drexel experience, focusing on the positive aspects. For example:
    • Why you came to Drexel.
    • Organizations you are involved with and how they have impacted you.
    • Your co-op experiences and what you have learned from them.
    • Any external organizations you are a part of.
    • What you love about Drexel.
  • Close your letter, thanking the donor again.
  • Review your letter for spelling and grammar.
