Congratulations to the 2022-2023 SAC Scholarship Recipients


Speech-Language & Audiology Canada (SAC) is proud to announce the winners of the 2022-2023 SAC Scholarships. A total of $31,750 was awarded to 27 students in speech-language pathology, audiology, and communication health assistants’ programs.

Student winners were selected based on their accomplishments in the areas of academic, community service, and leadership potential.

SAC’s scholarship program is the result of a collaboration between the Elks of Canada, KIDSPEECH, the Beach Family, and donations from our members. The scholarship program is our commitment to helping the next generation of speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and communication health assistants as they pursue their education and career.

“Supporting the future of our profession by helping students with their education elevates us all,” says Victoria McLeod, Aud (C), Chair of the Scholarship Committee. “The talent and creativity these students bring to their academic and clinical experience set them apart as true leaders.”

We would like to thank all the scholarship applicants, our donors, the Scholarship Committee, and the educators at the various schools for supporting their students. Congratulations to all the students – we look forward to seeing what you will accomplish next.
