MONTREAL - The Alouettes announced Thursday that the team will invest $120,000 over the next three years to the Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence, and the two organizations took the opportunity to award $34,000 in bursaries to 25 Quebec student-athletes.

Now in its ninth year, the Alouettes Bursary Program support student-athletes who excel in a recognized high school, CEGEP or university-level football program and who stand out on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

Alouettes C.O.O. Mark Weightman presented the students-athletes with their grants during a ceremony prior to the team’s game versus the BC Lions. He declared: “Since the team’s return in 1996, the Alouettes have made it a priority to support the next generation of Quebec football stars. Year after year, football is gaining popularity and consequently the number of student-athletes who play football continues to grow. We are proud to help continue to develop minor football with the goal of keeping Quebec’s best young athletes in the province to both study and pursue their football aspirations.”

Many types of bursaries were awarded and among the 26 given, there were : 4 Academic Excellence bursaries to reward exceptional school results; 3 Leadership bursaries to highlight community involvement; 2 Perseverance bursaries to encourage significant improvements in  academics; 16 Academic and Athletic Support bursaries to recognize the successful combination of football and studies and finally, 1 recruitment bursary to support a student-athlete who completed CEGEP in Quebec and decided to pursue his academic and athletic career in a Quebec university.

The program is co-directed by the Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence and Football Quebec in partnership with the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec. The Foundation’s President, Claude Chagnon, Football Quebec’s President, Jean M. Poirier and RSEQ’s President, Gustave Roël, released the following statement regarding the Alouettes involvement in the program: “The Foundation and the Alouettes joined their efforts not only to promote talent and great athletic performances on the field but also to point out outstanding results in the classrooms, support academic persistence and encourage young boys to stay in school as long as possible!”.

The bursary award ceremony was presented by RDS, which was represented by Sales & Marketing Vice-President, Mr. Patrick Jutras. A Prestige level communications partner of the Foundation since many years, RDS broadcasts testimonial clips of bursary recipients and is the official presenter of the 28th Quebec University Sports Awards Gala which will take place on November 26th, 2013, at Sheraton Laval Hotel.
