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.
Applications for the 2023 Boyde Beck Memorial Bursary are now open!
The winning applicant will be chosen in the fall of 2023 and will receive the Bursary by December 2023. The winning applicant will also be invited to attend the PEI Museum and Heritage Foundation Heritage Awards Ceremony in February 2024.
