Most of the scholarships offered to Georgia Tech students are made possible through the generous support of people who care about students and education. We need your help to communicate the importance of your scholarships to these donors. It gives the donor an opportunity to see how the gift has made a difference in your life as a student. Nothing is appreciated more than a kind note of thanks.

You got the award! Now it’s time to give thanks. We’ve provided an online form to make it easy. Your note is due by September 18. Please visit this link to complete the process.

Yes. It is important that you continue to acknowledge your gratitude for the scholarship. You should provide an update to the donor of your studies, new projects, accomplishments, etc. Whether or not you have already established a relationship with your donor, they are interested in your continued success at Georgia Tech!

Do not submit the same thank you note from previous years. This is discourteous to the donor and the Georgia Tech community.
