Four John Molson School of Business (JMSB) undergraduate accounting students were awarded $5,000 scholarships funded by the Canadian accounting firm Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (RCGT).

RCGT scholarship recipients are chosen through a competition, based on academic merit. The scholarships, which will handed out annually for the next five years, are part of a partnership agreement between RCGT and JMSB that also includes the establishment of the Person of the Year Awards that celebrate innovative Quebec business leaders who dare to do things differently.
