On August 30, 2023, the REA Foundation awarded 15 scholarships totaling $45,000 to 15 students with disabilities. This is a record amount for the REA Scholarship Program!

This initiative would not have been possible without the generous financial contributions of the Fondation Groupe Forget, the Fondation Jodoin Mamode, the Groupe Financier Industrielle Alliance, and the Fondation Mirella et Lino Saputo. Each of these organizations offered one or more scholarships valued at $3,000 each.
