To the Donors of the SFU Retirees Association 50th Anniversary Scholarship:
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude for your financial
assistance. I am currently in my fourth year at SFU, pursuing a
Bachelor of Arts with a double major in psychology and French.
The decision to pursue French was a recent one which will add
at least another year to my education. I am able to take this
time to tailor my education to my passion thanks in large part to donors such as
yourself. My hope is to teach French at the secondary school level and eventually to
become a professional counsellor. The short version is that the financial aid that I have
received from this scholarship and others like it has allowed me to take advantage of a
multitude of opportunities which have opened up these possibilities for my future.
Thanks to this assistance I have been able to focus on my studies and maintain a high
GPA, bringing me closer to my goal of gaining admission to the Professional
Development Program at SFU, and eventually to the counselling psychology M.A.
program. It has allowed me to spend time volunteering in research labs (CRECHE,
Attention Lab, Driving Simulator Lab) where I gained research experience and forged
valuable connections in the academic community, which will also help me attain my
academic goals. Volunteering enabled me to get a sense for where my passions lie and
what my goals really are. Next year I hope to volunteer as a peer educator. The
support that students like myself receive from these scholarships is truly invaluable.
Once again, I would like to thank you for your generous contribution.
Sincerely,
Brie Wish

Endowment Income Account
This entity holds the Spending Income Allocations for an Endowment Principal
Account. It includes unused spending income from prior years.
