    FRANCOMBAT COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

    We have been honored to support students by giving away more than $70,000.00 in scholarships over the years. Application numbers hit record levels in 2020 with over 1000 students applying for the Francombat Foundation’s Scholarship. In 2021, we will be partnering with more martial arts schools to offer Francombat scholarships to the Montreal Community.
