Boyde Beck Memorial Bursary
When he passed away in 2017, Boyde Beck was one of the longest-serving employees of the PEI Museum and Heritage Foundation. Boyde wanted to inspire a love of history and heritage in his fellow Islanders, and this is why the Foundation has created the Boyde Beck Memorial Bursary in his name.
The Boyde Beck Memorial Bursary is awarded annually to a high school or post-secondary student who is (or was) an employee of the Foundation. The Bursary is valued at $500 and goes to a candidate who is studying, or planning to study, history, museum studies or a related field at a post secondary institution.
