The Beyond IYA (BIYA) committee is pleased to announce that our Discover the Universe / À la découverte de l'Univers online astronomy webinar program has been awarded a $3500 grant through the Saint Mary’s University SEEP (Student Employment Experience Program). This will enable the program to hire a SMU student on a part-time term basis to expand the reach and scope of the exisiting program, making it even more successful.

Discover the Universe / À la découverte de l'Univers is a joint project of the RASC, CASCA and FAAQ. Funding for this program has been provided through a joint NSERC PromoScience grant, and from CASCA, as part of the IYA legacy project of Canada's three major astronomy organizations.
