Mathis Bourassa

Mathis is a Bromont, Quebec, native and attended high school in Granby. For Cégep, Mathis wanted to push himself academically and went in search of better opportunities. This led to post-secondary studies in Montreal at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf.

During his two years at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf, Mathis held the treasurer position for the student association and started a major initiative. With COVID19 putting a pause on most extracurricular activities, it was Mathis' idea to turn the under utilized funds into the first student managed investment fund. Eighty-five percent of the funds are now used to provide students without the financial means with a scholarship to attend the school. The remaining 15 percent is to be reinvested to generate more capital to fund the following year’s scholarships. Impressive!

Mathis is in the four-year honours program in financial economics at St. Andrews. He said he knew early on that he wanted to study economics as the program is world-renowned and unique in itself.

Mathis first heard about the McEuen Scholarship through a past recipient, Katherine LaCroix, who also graduated from Jean-de-Brébeuf. He told us he made it his goal to work hard for two years to merit the scholarship. “The scholarship gives me the opportunity to study abroad, which will challenge me to get even more involved in my community and make a difference,” Mathis said.
