RFCM: $ 115 000 in grants over three years for CEGEP students

TD Bank: Proud Title Sponsor

MONTREAL, April 28 /CNW Telbec/ - After just three years in existence, le regroupement des fondations collégiales de Montréal has awarded more than $115,000 in scholarships to 112 college students who have achieved excellence in their programs of study. This initiative has been sponsored by TD Bank since its inception.

The regroupement of 12 college foundations was conceived in Montreal with the objective of demonstrating that CEGEP students represent a dynamic force in both business and society in general. The annual gala highlights emerging talent and demonstrates that a postsecondary education can help meet the needs of industry. To illustrate this, each award is bestowed upon its recipient by a representative of its sponsoring company. The recipients are partnered with their corporate sponsor and dine together at the exclusive banquet event.

Since the creation of the regroupement, TD Bank has been on board as title sponsor of the annual gala. "Education is a key priority in TD Bank's support initiatives. We firmly believe that support for education will help build the next generation. We are proud to be a partner, for the third year running, of an event that rewards these students in their pursuit of excellence." said Nathalie Gagnon, Vice-President, TD Commercial Banking.

On May 3, 2011, 36 scholarships will be awarded to as many students. The evening will also include the awarding of the jury's special Coup de coeur scholarship. Each year, the 12 colleges on the island of Montreal educate more than 40,000 people in more than 60 programs of study - technical, pre-university and continuing education - representing all the main economic sectors. Over the past 40 years, nearly 375,000 students have graduated from Montreal-area colleges, leading them to rewarding careers or success at university. The colleges continue to play an important role in shaping the new economic landscape.
