Montreal, December 1, 2015. Pierre-Luc Morin, Cyril Pujol and Alice Tourneyrie, the three recipients of the 2015-2016 Provencher Roy scholarships, visited the firm’s offices in Old Montreal this past November 26 to meet their generous donor. They were thus able to get a glimpse of life in an architectural firm by chatting with some of the seasoned architects who make up Provencher Roy’s extensive multidisciplinary team. The winners were greeted by Claude Provencher, senior partner and cofounder, and by the two members of the merit scholarship’s jury, architects Matthieu Geoffrion and Jacques Rousseau.
The Provencher Roy annual scholarships provide $2,500 to each of two first-year architecture graduate students who have distinguished themselves by their excellent academic record as undergraduates and by the quality of their admission portfolio.
“It is a wonderful acknowledgment of the very high calibre of the projects submitted by the students in their admission portfolio,” emphasizes the director of the Université de Montréal’s School of Architecture, Jacques Lachapelle, who adds he is quite proud of the prize and expresses thanks to the firm Provencher Roy and to all the donors. Thanks to their generosity, the School is able to offer numerous prizes and scholarships to reward its worthy students or to support certain initiatives in the field of sustainable development as well as other innovative projects.
