"I was so excited to receive your email about receiving a scholarship through SAC. I feel incredibly honoured and humbled to be the recipient of such an award. Being an S-LP has been my dream for a long time now and one struggle with the process has been funding myself through six years of school. Therefore, every little bit helps, takes off some of the financial pressure, and allows me to focus of being he best S-LP I can possibly be.  I really appreciate the time you took to read through my application and seriously consider me as a recipient. Thank you for your generous contribution to my education."

"I am writing to express my appreciation for being selected to receive an SAC scholarship this year. As I am nearing the end of my studies, I can say that the support provided by Speech-Language & Audiology Canada’s scholarship program helped to relieve some of the financial pressure faced by students who must travel to complete their education. By helping students like me to finance their education, I feel that SAC is ensuring that incoming professionals have been able to make the most of their training, and are optimally prepared to help their clients succeed. It is comforting and encouraging to see how hard SAC works to support future members of the profession and to reward those who are striving to become the best professionals they can be. I am excited to find ways to give back to SAC, and to future students as I begin my career as a speech-language pathologist."
