Nicolas Poulin and Julien Bahl are the lucky winners of a perseverance scholarship awarded by the Foundation Alliance Sport-Études.
This foundation, recognized and subsidized by the Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research, brings together 40 colleges, the Cégep de distance and seven universities.
Its mission is to support, supervise and contribute to the academic and athletic success and perseverance of high-level Quebec athletes pursuing post-secondary education. In the fall of 2016, 1,250 student athletes from the Québec Major Junior Hockey League and 50 sports federations are enrolled in one of the member schools.
The two Phoenix players from Sherbrooke are therefore awarded a scholarship of $ 2,500 each for the continuation of their academic studies!
A noble and well deserved for these two athletes!
