Two students pursuing high-level athletic careers in addition to their studies at HEC Montréal received scholarships supporting excellence in academics and sports at a ceremony held on February 18 in Montréal.

Louis Krieber-Gagnon and Pierre-Luc Poulin both received $4,000 through the 20th annual Saputo Scholarship Program, a joint program of dairy company Saputo Inc. and the Fondation de l’athlète d’excellence du Québec (FAEQ).

Krieber-Gagnon and Poulin are two of 51 student athletes to receive scholarships this year in recognition of their academic or athletic performance, and to support the balance between school and sports.
