Dianne Beveridge Memorial Award

The Dianne Beveridge Memorial Award was established by AYVA Educational Solutions and PASCO Scientific to honour Dianne Beveridge, our founder, colleague, and friend who passed away in June 2022 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Education grants will be awarded to both extraordinary teachers and students who have a passion for science, technology, engineering, and/or math.

  • In association with the University of Waterloo, an entrance scholarship will be given to a science student.
  • Represented by the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (BASEF), a product credit grant towards PASCO equipment will be awarded to a local teacher.
  • AYVA will award one secondary teacher -Canada wide- for their invaluable role in a student’s life. To apply, the application link is listed below.

Student Award

One annual award, valued at $2,000, will be given to a student entering Year One in the Faculty of Science. Selection will begin in the Spring of 2023 and will continue until 2027. The Student Awards & Financial Aid (SAFA) will select a recipient based on academic excellence and extracurricular involvement.

Teacher Grant

One award, valued at $2,500, will be granted as a product credit for PASCO equipment to an Ontario Certified Teacher who teaches science, technology, engineering, and/or math from grades 7 to 12 and is from a publicly funded school board in the BASEF catchment area. The recipient will be selected by BASEF and AYVA based on a written application best explaining how the funds for PASCO equipment will be used in the classroom.

Teaching Excellence Award

One annual award, valued at $1,000, will be given to a secondary teacher who has been recognized by their colleagues as one who instill a love of learning in their students by teaching science, technology, engineering and/or math, better equipping them with the skills needed to excel in society.
