The Synergee Scholarship was launched in 2019 and funded solely by Synergee. Through the Synergee Scholarship, we aim to support and inspire the fitness leaders of tomorrow.
Spring 2021 Synergee Scholar Carriera Lamoureux
The $1,000 Scholarship and Dorm Fitness Package (valued at $250) is awarded to a student who is a fitness enthusiast and leader; believes in the life-changing power of sweat; and is pursuing a future in fitness and health. Formal training and education in health and fitness is an asset, but not necessary. We are looking for personal and creative stories that show strength, resilience, and inspiration; that express the impact movement, exercise, sport, and/or fitness have had on the recipient, and how they will bring that to others!
Two separate awards of $1,000 and a Dorm Room Fitness Package will be available in 2021. One Scholarship will be awarded in February, and a second separate Scholarship will be awarded in September (to a different recipient). Recipients that apply in February can also apply in September.
Applications are currently closed. Please follow us on Facebook/Instagram (@synergeefit) and sign up for our mailing list to get the latest updates.
Below, we have listed successful Synergee Scholars from previous years.
Synergee looks forward to hearing from a diverse range of applicants, and does not discriminate based on gender, race, culture, spirituality, or socioeconomic status. Special consideration will be given for individuals who are in financial need and/or are members of an underserved/minority community.

All who know me would be quick to confirm that I love to move, and that fitness is important in my life. Regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle are necessary for me as a student because it helps me to manage stress more effectively and to be more productive to survive nursing school. I am very passionate about fitness, I live a healthy lifestyle, I lead by example. This scholarship from Synergee will help reduce financial strain with university costs.
Hailey is in her second year of Nursing School. She is involved in a variety of sports, clubs, and teams. Currently, she is on her University’s basketball team and running club. Hailey attributes much of her academic success to her athletic activity, since it gives her a sense of focus and purpose.
For Hailey, fitness isn’t about being the best; it’s about being consistent. It’s about lifting others up, giving it your all, and enjoying the process. It’s been extremely complementary to her high stress, high demand schooling as she works towards being a Registered Nurse in the ER.
“Fitness has showed me I can achieve things I once thought impossible; that small goals add up. Exercise leaves me feeling that I will make it through the next class or exam. A great work out gives me mental strength: my fitness has promoted a strong, healthy body as well as a strong, healthy mind. I also love that fitness and health are consistent: you work hard, results are a guarantee!”
We are very excited to award Hailey with $1000 and a Dorm Fitness Pack to help her balance her health and studies. We are excited to see where her fitness and academics take her next!
I am a role model for people growing up with or without orthopedic difficulties, and I [aim] show [others] that you can overcome any obstacles in your way if you work hard at it. The Synergee Scholarship will help me achieve my goal of being a Shelter and Wildlife veterinarian while continuing to pursue my athletic career as a Varsity Wrestler.
Ashlyn is finishing grade 12 and will soon be embarking on her post-secondary education. She participates in a variety of school sports, including track and field, mountain biking, cross country running, and wrestling. This future-veterinarian is our Feb 2020 Synergee Scholar!
Ashlyn’s story of overcoming odds from a young age grabbed our attention! She was born with a right club foot deformity which impacted and limited her ability to walk, run, and participate in sports. Despite much of her life up until Grade 8 being spent in casts, braces, night splints, and shoe lifts, her grit and determination kept her involved in sports. Her display of strength and persistence throughout this time is nothing short of inspiring.
For example, to keep pace with her peers, she would adapt her run to a bear crawl position; and, more times than not, she could outrun them! Her physical challenges gave her all the more reason to work harder and go after goals that some viewed as impossible. Since, she has won numerous awards for her performance on school sports teams, and concurrently achieved academic excellence.
Ashlyn has been awarded $1000 and a Dorm Room Fitness Pack to support her through undergrad and veterinary school. She will participate in Varsity Wrestling as she works to become a Shelter and Wildlife Veterinarian. We are so proud to support future leaders in fitness like Ashlyn who embody the traits of strength, determination, and inclusivity. This is what Synergee Athletes are made of!
The Synergee Scholarship will help me achieve my goal of becoming a Chiropractor and help with all the costs that come with moving to a new city and being a full-time student. I believe I was chosen because I value accessibility, and that’s what Synergee is all about. It is a relief to have some of my school costs covered, and this scholarship will allow me to continue staying active in my free time. Thank you, Synergee
Megan is from Thunder Bay, ON. She is in her third year of her Kinesiology Undergraduate Degree at Lakehead University.
From a young age, sports and fitness has played an integral roll in her life. From basketball to martial arts, Megan has been both a teammate and a leader. Whether it’s starting an intermural team with her university friends to encourage them to play basketball on their study breaks or teaching at-risk youth martial arts and self-defense to raise their confidence, Megan loves sharing her knowledge and love of fitness with everyone she meets.
Megan is determined to be a Chiropractor. After completing her Bachelor Degree, she plans to move to Toronto to complete another 4 years of intense schooling. She can’t wait to help others through a health-related career. Outside of school and work, she will continue to encourage her friends, family, and all those around her to find solace and enjoyment through movement.
Megan has been awarded $5000 to alleviate some of the financial pressures that come with post-secondary education. Her dedication to making fitness goals more accessible and achievable to those around her – through teaching others and her unyielding excitement – makes her the perfect candidate for the Synergee Scholarship.
