Our purpose is to encourage them to adopt a balanced lifestyle that will help them achieve their educational and sports goals and in turn motivate them to continue their academic studies.
With more than $ 20,000 awarded each year in scholarships to student-athletes, the Fondation Bruny Surin wants to make a difference in the path of young people and help them balance their sports and studies.

A record-high for FBS!
