The Foundation for Athletic Excellence (FAEQ) is pleased to have concluded the difficult year of 2021 by awarding no less than $106,000 in individual bursaries to 40 outstanding student-athletes at a virtual bursary ceremony held this afternoon on the Zoom platform.

Martin Lavigne, President of the Foundation, was happy to be able to play Father Christmas with the 40 scholarship recipients and, above all, to end the year on a high note with them. “The FAEQ is very proud to be able to pursue its mission despite the pandemic thanks to its loyal and generous partners. Supporting and accompanying Quebec’s best student-athletes in their quest for academic and athletic success has been our raison d’être for over 35 years,” Lavigne said in a press release.
