Congratulations on receiving a scholarship from the UW School of Law! As you know, most of our scholarships are made possible through the generosity of our donors, many of whom are alumni of the law school. To fully thank and honor our donors, we are committed to connecting them to our scholarship recipients. These relationships also offer a helpful networking opportunity for our students. To facilitate this process, we ask you to write a thank you letter or letters to the donors who have contributed to your education. They enjoy hearing from you and learning that their donations are being put to excellent use. Thank you letters are due the first day of winter quarter each academic year.
This website is a resource to make the thanking process as easy as possible. First, we suggest you take a look at
some tips for writing thank you letters. Then look up your
scholarship donor information on the scholarship summary page.
Mailing instructions are available so you know how to package and mail your letters.
Please note some donors have a very special relationship with UW Law and may ask
to meet you in person. We will facilitate these meetings and will contact you
directly to schedule them.
The Office Event Management & Donor Relations will be mailing your thank you letters to the donors of your fund(s) as part of a larger packet of information. Therefore, no hard copy letter is required or needed this year. We have also simplified the way you will submit your letter. Please submit your letter via catalyst survey here by the first day of winter quarter at midnight. Please paste the context of your letter directly into the answer box. We will format your letter, include the formal address block, salutation line and date when you letter is mailed as part of the larger packet.
No hard copy letter is required. Paste the content of your letter directly in the answer box of question 2 in the catalyst survey link below.
Only write one letter, even if you receive multiple scholarships. If you are the recipient of multiple scholarships from UW Law, you only need to write and submit one letter. We will send that letter to all donors of all funds you are the recipient of. No address block or salutation line is needed – we will insert that for you.
The deadline for thank you letters is the first day of winter quarter each academic year. The catalyst survey for uploading letter context will close at midnight the first day of winter quarter.
