Dear Soroptimist International of Novato,

I personally wanted to thank you for accepting me to receive an annual award for my studies.  With great gratitude I want to thank you for choosing me.  I will be attending San Jose State University, majoring in Nursing.  I was worried about how I will be able to afford college.  Coming from a low-income household, college was always a high reach for my family.  I will be the first in my family to attend college, thanks to you.  This scholarship has opened the door for a better future.  My words will never suffice to the amount of gratitude I have.  Thank you for seeing my potential, and thank you for helping me be one step closer to achieving my dream.  This scholarship helped me close the college money gap I had, so I do not have to use loans to pay for my college.  Thank you again, and I promise to work hard and make a difference in my community.

Sincerely,

A.M.
