Thank you so much for choosing me as a recipient of this scholarship. My academics are very important to me, and being able to graduate from such a great school as the University of Oklahoma has been a dream of mine since I was in elementary school. By giving me the scholarship, you have helped me be one step closer to achieving this goal of mine.

This scholarship means a great deal to me. I knew that attending OU was going to come with financial challenges, but I was willing to accept these and do all that I can in order to be able to go to school where I chose. With your help, I am able to continue going to school and working towards graduating with my Master in Accountancy. I cannot thank the Board enough for selecting me; I am so grateful for this gift and can’t wait to show you all what it has helped me achieve in the coming years.

Thank you so much for choosing me to receive this scholarship. This award means so much to me and will help me greatly.

I am the youngest of four children in my family, meaning I am the last to go to college out of my siblings. Additionally, both of my older brothers and I will be attending the University of Oklahoma in the fall at the same time. Receiving this money will help my family be able to pay for me and my siblings’ educations.

I am very much looking forward to starting school in August at OU, where I will be studying business before I hopefully go to law school. This scholarship will allow me to receive a good education, so I can go on and fulfill my career dreams with minimal restraints.

Again, thank you so much for considering and choosing me as a recipient for this scholarship.

It means the world to me!
