Sample acknowledgement for a final year Project

In this article, we will provide a sample acknowledgment for a final year project, however similar form can also apply to the acknowledgements for thesis, or research paper.

The most important thing when writing acknowledgement for a final year project is to acknowledge contributions made by your supervisor and institution that supported your work. However, you may also consider acknowledging the support you have received from:

  1. Staff/colleagues that provided you inputs
  2. University / College
  3. Institution that provided you financial support in the project preparation
  4. Friends and Family


I would like to express my sincere gratitude to several individuals and organizations for supporting me throughout my Graduate study. First, I wish to express my sincere gratitude to my supervisor, Professor Collins, for his enthusiasm, patience, insightful comments, helpful information, practical advice and unceasing ideas that have helped me tremendously at all times in my research and writing of this thesis.  His immense knowledge, profound experience and professional expertise in Data Quality Control has enabled me to complete this research successfully. Without his support and guidance, this project would not have been possible. I could not have imagined having a better supervisor in my study.

I also wish to express my sincere thanks to the University of Groningen for accepting me into the graduate program. In addition, I am deeply indebted to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands for granting me the doctoral scholarship. This financial support has enabled me to complete my PhD studies successfully. Also, I and grateful the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen for sponsoring me for participation in the scientific conferences.


I am also grateful to the following university staff: Ahmed Mustafa, Rick Van Dijk, and Breda Van Breda for their consistent support and assistance.

Finally, last but by no means least; also to everyone in the Research institute for Data Science it was great sharing premises with all of you during last five years.

Thanks for all your encouragement!
