Jeanne and J.-Louis Lévesque Endowment for Nutrisciences and Health research

The Fondation J.-Louis Lévesque is a generous supporter of health research at universities and institutes across the country. J.-Louis Lévesque graduated from Saint Dunstan's University in 1934 and was awarded an honorary doctor of laws in 1964. Suzanne Lévesque, daughter of J.-Louis and president and CEO of his namesake foundation, was awarded an honorary doctor of laws from UPEI in 2006.

At the University of Prince Edward Island the Jeanne and J.-Louis Lévesque Endowment for Nutrisciences and Health supports a research chair, professorships, and graduate fellowships. This funding makes possible the recognition of some of the university's most creative and productive scientists.
