Thanks to a public fundraising campaign and very strict financial management, the Prêt d’Honneur de l’Est-du-Québec (PHEQ) awards USD 11,800 scholarships to students from 25 educational institutions in our region. an increase of 10% compared to last year.
The members of the board are convinced that the mission of PHEQ is still topical, especially because, as the only organization in our region, it helps high school, university and university students who are struggling with financial problems that may jeopardize their studies.
In addition to modulating scholarships according to their level of education, PHEQ has also offered to offer them to students of training centers (CFA) or adult education (CEA). PHEQ therefore awarded one scholarship for the university level, six scholarships for the university level, eight scholarships for students from vocational training centers and eleven scholarships for the CEA / CFA.
