What is an appropriate way to express my thanks?

Asked by SuperMouse (30738 points ) November 21st, 2012

So I got the scholarship for which I recently received letters of recommendation. Now I really want to show my gratitude to the people who wrote the letters, but I am not sure what would be appropriate. Ideas?

Congratulations, @SuperMouse!

I really think a personal note either on nice notepaper or on a beautiful blank card would be an excellent way to express your sincere appreciation in your own words. To me that’s more suitable than something on which you spent a lot of money (as if you didn’t really need the scholarship) or just a little (which won’t feel commensurate). A warm, genuine expression of feeling is beyond price. Besides, it’s their words, thought, and time that they gave for you.

Further, I would keep these supportive folks in mind as you progress with your program, let them know how you’re doing, and let them know when you finish, with a reminder that you haven’t forgotten their timely assistance.

I agree. A heartfelt personal note of thanks is the best way to go.

Congratulations on the scholarship. Having written such, @Jeruba‘s suggestion would be just what I’d most appreciate.

Congratulations! I usually send thanks for letters by email, but I’m sure a card or paper note would not be unwelcome.

A handwritten note thanking each of them for the part they played in your getting the scholarship with an assurance that you will work hard in school.
