"I was thrilled to receive an SAC scholarship this year and I want to thank the scholarship committee. The scholarship has allowed me the opportunity to recently complete a Hanen certification workshop, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I am also looking forward to completing an Individual Authorizer course in March. Again, thank you for the recognition and the chance to further myself as a communication health professional!"

"Thank you so much for choosing me as a recipient of a SAC scholarship. I, like many of my fellow students, have worked very hard to get to this point in my academic career. Being honoured with this scholarship helps with the costs of my education, but more than that it gives me confidence knowing that others believe in my clinical abilities as well as my academic skills. I hope to further my profession of audiology in the future by being a good, patient-centred, clinician and an advocate in my community."
