My scholarship award notification mentions the requirement for a Thank You note before my scholarship funds are disbursed. Why?

It is important that scholarship recipients acknowledge scholarship awards with a thank you note to the donor or organization that made the award possible. Thank You notes can be uploaded via the CWI online scholarship application, mailed to the Foundation Office or emailed to [email protected]. This is a requirement.

Scholarship recipients who do not complete a Thank You note will not receive their scholarship funding. Please contact the Scholarship Coordinator at [email protected] if you need any assistance with completing this requirement.
