Congratulations! Because of the generous support of private donors and your accomplishments, you have been selected to receive a scholarship award from the College of Health and Human Sciences or one of its departments. It is always a pleasure to reward and recognize excellence in academic endeavors. Many outstanding students applied for scholarships in the College of Health and Human Sciences, and you deserve to feel proud that you were selected.
To accept your scholarship, please complete these four tasks in AcademicWorks.
You can log in to AcademicWorks via RamWeb, using the link in your email, or by logging on at https://colostate.academicworks.com/.
Please note that you will need to satisfy all four of these tasks, before your scholarship dollars can be released to your student account.
The College is fortunate to have many private donors -- individuals, foundations, and corporations -- who contribute generously to scholarships and fellowships for our outstanding students. Scholarships are funded by real people often in memory or in honor of a loved one or favorite professor. Therefore, it is very important to thank those who made your scholarship possible. Beyond the simple courtesy of this act, often thank you letters can result in increased scholarship funds from donors, which further benefits students like you.
Therefore the College of Health and Human Sciences requires each scholarship recipient to write a thank you letter that we can proudly send to your scholarship donor(s) prior to releasing your scholarship funds to your student account.
Information you may need to draft your thank you letter is below. You may download a template version here.
Thank You Letter Best Practices
We will review your letter prior to releasing your scholarship funds to your student account. Once approved, we will send it to your scholarship donor(s).
