CASLPA Scholarship Program
Don’t forget! The deadline to apply for CASLPA Scholarships is October 15!
The Canadian Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists is the national voice of over 4,800 professionals. A not-for-profit association, CASLPA supports the professional needs of its members, champions the interests of those who require speech, language and hearing services and promotes awareness of how speech-language pathologists and audiologists contribute to the well-being of Canadians living with communication disorders.
Applicants for CASLPA scholarships “…must be enrolled in a master’s degree program in speech-language pathology or audiology. Students enrolled in a professional doctorate degree program (Au.D), who have not previously completed a master’s degree program in audiology, may also apply. Applicants will be evaluated based on level of academic work, clinical practicum, references and an essay including career goals.” Specific criteria and application forms can be downloaded from the CASLPA website.
The Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children
The Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children has developed and supported programs providing services to children with communication disorders for more than 40 years. Almost 20 million dollars and countless volunteer hours have been dedicated to improving the lives of these children. The Elks and Royal Purple were awarded the CASLPA Consumer Advocacy Award in 1999 in recognition of their support of the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology. The following scholarships are funded by the Elks & Royal Purple Fund for Children:
The $2,500 Susan Lane scholarship is named in the honour of long time director of the BC Family Hearing Resource Centre and will be awarded annually to a student who is already involved in one of the Elks program (ISTAR, B.C. Resource Centre, SPARC, Quebec Cochlear Implant Program, N.B.- P.E.I Deaf Camp, etc.)
A number of scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded on the basis of academic achievement, references, and an essay outlining career goals. Preference is given to students who plan to work with children.
Grace Margaret Harris, a charter member of CASLPA, was given the Honours of the Association in 1977. In 1992, she was made a member of the Order of Canada for her contributions. The citation said, she “…has significantly improved the quality of life for children with hearing impairments…” In her will, she left a bequest to CASLPA to fund an annual scholarship of $1,000 to support a student enrolled in a Canadian university.
