"I'd like to extend sincere appreciation to the Beach Family for implementing the Placement Support Scholarship, and for helping SLP students like me gain clinical experience in rural settings across Canada. By specifically identifying the needs of rural communities, the Beach family is helping future SAC members to provide essential communicative care for all Canadians, regardless of geographical location or age, and I'm very grateful to them for creating these scholarships. I will keep the family's passion for service to the under-served close to my heart as I complete my education and begin a rewarding career."

"I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you and the scholarship committee for making me the recipient of the Grace Margaret Harris Scholarship. I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor and I am deeply appreciative of your support.

I am so excited to pursue a career in audiology. The financial assistance you provided will be of great help to me in paying my educational and placement expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time on studying and becoming a better clinician."

"I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to you for the Beach Family Graduate Scholarship. I am honoured to have been chosen as one of the recipients this year! Having to move to complete my studies in Speech-Language Pathology has been both emotionally and financially challenging.  This scholarship will help to ease at least some of those challenges. In addition, it will support me in finishing the program and pursuing a career working in either pediatric or geriatric population in underserviced areas."
