Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence – Montreal, June 19th 2017- The Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence (FAEQ) is proud to announce the names of top university student-athletes who have chosen to pursue their academic and athletic careers in one of the twelve member universities of the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) as of September 2017.

This year, no less than thirty-five recipients will be the beneficiaries of a total of $166, 000. These student-athletes were selected based on their outstanding achievements during their collegiate careers and the impact they are projected to have on the university sport scene as early as next season.

Amongst this year’s outstanding cohort is quarterback and future University of Montréal Carabins, Dimitri Morand. The pivot rewrote the record books during his college career with the Géants of Cégep St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Member of the U20 Team Canada unit that brought home a gold medal at the IFAF World Championships in 2016, Morand will pursue his studies in communications. Also amongst the newcomers in blue, volleyball player Youssef Baati is sure to impress. Named RSEQ division 1 Athlete of the year in 2017, the future medical student was also awarded the Lieutenant-Governor’s medal for his outstanding academic achievement.

The Foundation will also support Shawna Brayton, rugby player from Chateauguay. Member of team Canada’s U20 team, Brayton also brought home a gold medal at the 2016 Canadian Championships. The Fine Arts student will begin her university career with the Concordia Stingers this fall.

“We are extremely proud to welcome another excellent group of bursary recipients to the Foundation this year. The athletic achievement of these student-athletes is made only more impressive by their academic prowess. We are pleased to do our part to encourage their development here in Quebec”, said Patricia Demers, Executive Director of the FAEQ.

In addition to the 31 bursaries dedicated to the Quebec student-athletes, four recruitment bursaries of $3,000 each, will be distributed to Canadian student-athletes not from Quebec who have chosen to pursue their academic and athletic careers in a Quebec university.
