Scholarship Cover Letters
An application acknowledgement letter is a cover letter sent to an applicant as an acknowledgement that you have received their scholarship application.
When applicants are sending you the applications for scholarships programs, they are always little bit tensed to know about the result. Sometimes, they will keep calling your organization to know if you have received the application or to know when the acceptance letters are going to be sent out. To avoid this cumbersome experience, it is convenient to send the applicants an acknowledgement letter as soon as you receive them.
At times, when the number of applicants is very large, you can also email the application acknowledgement letter. It will save you from the many spam mails and letters that you will keep on receiving otherwise. Besides, by taking this step yourself, you are creating a good impression in the minds of the public. It will be also be convenient for you and the applicants, if you mention the approximate time of releasing of the selected list of students. You can also mention any follow-up and other measures that the applicant is supposed to take.
If you are new to the procedures of scholarship applications, do not worry. We have some pointers you need to keep in mind while sending out these acknowledgement letters:
- Always approve the draft from experienced professional before finalizing
- Check for typographical errors, spelling and grammatical mistakes
- Proofread the document several times before finalizing
- Use the original letterheads of your company
- You can add any data that you want the students to know before they are intimated about the results
- Never make mistakes in the title and name of the applicants as it creates a bad impression.
We have a few samples of acknowledgement letters for scholarship application for you to view and refer:
