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 after Jacques Genest, whereas the Fonds Société et culture honors Paul Gérin-Lajoie.
Every month, each Fund will award $1,000 to a student researcher.
