“For students, receiving a scholarship is very fulfilling. It’s also a big motivator,” says Camille Girard, Trottier Fellow at the Institut de l’énergie Trottier and a master’s student at Polytechnique Montréal.
In a competitive global environment, all major universities are vying to attract and retain the best students, the most promising talent, and the most eminent researchers. This is why scholarships are so important for Campus Montréal, as they create conditions to maintain and reinforce our key position both in Canada and around the world.
“Out of the 1,000 students who took part in the Campus Abroad program in the past 10 years, over 95% said that this experience was a remarkable moment in their university careers,” explains Ari Van Assche, Director of the Department of International Business at HEC Montréal.
The Lallemand – Marcel and Roland Chagnon Fund, which encourages access to higher education through scholarships, has opened the door to international opportunities for future managers who are passionate about global interdependence and about strategic issues related to global social development, internationalization and innovation.
“Success and excellence scholarships allow recipients to devote more energy to their studies and to distinguish themselves, to do more, and to have an impact on the national or international stage. All of Quebec society and Canadian society benefits,” notes Christiane Laflamme, Vice-Dean of Performance Studies and Support for Student Success at the Faculty of Music of Université de Montréal.

Support for excellence changes the world
A large portion of the money from Campus Montréal’s major fundraising campaign is invested in scholarships.
To promote excellence and entrepreneurship, Serge Gendron, President of the AGF Group, decided to donate $1 million, which included $600,000 for excellence scholarships for master’s students in civil engineering at Polytechnique.
Created with a donation of $1.5 million, the Marcel-Saucier Violin Scholarship Fund supports the talent of the most gifted violin students at the Faculty of Music of Université de Montréal.
Lallemand’s $1-million gift to Campus Montréal led to the creation of a fund for international business that will finance a professorship in this field as well as scholarships in international trade and international entrepreneurship.
When students from every field of study can apply their talents, all of society benefits.
