“Dear The University of Michigan Club of Greater Manistee-Ludington,
Thank you so much for selecting me with your scholarship of $300 and a $50 M Den gift card! I am very thankful for this award, and for all of you taking the time to read my application.
I am really excited about my upcoming journey at U of M, and I can’t wait to see where my education and experiences will take me. I know that by becoming a wolverine, my education/ degree will take me anywhere I seek to find a job. I am proud that I get to start out and take pride in being a student at the country’s top public university, and my dream school.
Tuition is very costly so I couldn’t thank you all enough for this scholarship.
