Welcome to our 166 new graduates
In 2023-2024, 166 graduates will be joining the network of INRS graduates, the next generation of scientists capable of bringing innovation to Québec and the world. The Foundation team is delighted to welcome them in person at today's convocation ceremony at the Centre Mont-Royal in Montréal.

We'll be contributing to the festive atmosphere. We'll be handing out some 30 door prizes thanks to the support of our sponsors, as well as our popular yellow bag to carry your proudly deserved new diploma. In addition to celebrating your success, dear graduates, who have shown perseverance and overcome the many challenges of producing quality research, we hope to enable you to keep connected to INRS and its vibrant student and scientific community.

We are particularly pleased to be able to mark the fourth anniversary of the INRS Foundation with you. Created in May 2020, the Foundation is dedicated to supporting the growth of INRS and showcasing its graduates.

To date, thanks to the generosity of members of the greater INRS community and our partners, we have awarded over $375,000 in scholarships, prizes and emergency financial assistance to INRS students.

We also showcased some one hundred graduates by highlighting their successes and achievements. It's a pleasure to interact with them and share their inspiring stories. Their stories are all different, but their common thread is the use of scientific training to seize professional opportunities, each more exciting than the last, whether they relate directly or indirectly to our programs of study.

Today, for the fifth time, the Foundation is also awarding the Prix Lumières, as well as prizes for the best master's theses or essays and the best doctoral dissertations in each of our four centers. We would like to take this opportunity to warmly congratulate all the winners. We hope you will find them inspiring, and that their stories will inspire you to go further and tell us yours.

The INRS Foundation is your foundation; it exists by, for and with you. That's why we invite you to update your contact details and keep in touch with us, so that you can benefit from the strength of a network of some 3,750 graduates who, like you, rely on science to contribute every day to the economic, social and cultural development of our society.

Congratulations and thank you for keeping in touch!

See you soon,

The INRS Foundation team
