The Relève étoile competition, formerly known as the Étudiants-chercheurs étoiles competition, promotes careers in research and aims to recognize the excellence of the research conducted by university students, postdoctoral fellows and members of professional bodies who are carrying out advanced research training in the areas covered by the three Fonds de recherche du Québec.

To pay tribute to eminent members of Québec’s scientific community in recognition of their remarkable careers and outstanding contributions to the development of the research ecosystem, the award granted by the Fonds Nature et technologies has been named in honour of Louis Berlinguet. The Fonds Santé’s award is named for Jacques Genest. The Relève étoile award of the Fonds Société et culture will also honour an individual who has made an indelible impact on the social sciences and humanities.

Every month, each Fund will award $1,000 to a student researcher.

Dr. Quirion sends his congratulations to the recipients.
