Supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs
The first Pierre Péladeau Bursaries, named in memory of our founder, a man known for his vision, determination and entrepreneurial drive who inspired generations of Quebecers, were handed out in 1999.
The four Pierre-Péladeau Bursaries, worth $100,000, $50,000, $35,000 and $15,000, are handed out to stimulate business startups in Québec. All Québec university students are eligible. The financial support helps young entrepreneurs start up a business, carry out their business plan, and develop their products and markets, regardless of their field of study or the nature of their venture.
The winners will be announced at a special event to mark the 20th anniversary of the Pierre Péladeau Bursaries.
