Scholarships & Financial Assistance

With education costs on the rise, enhancing student assistance is a top priority for Acadia. Each year, we award more than $4 million to students in the form of scholarships, scholar-bursaries, bursaries, awards, and prizes. By maintaining a strong scholarship and financial assistance program, we are able to attract, retain and support our students.

As a donor to scholarships and financial assistance, you can direct your gift toward: general award funds or awards for specific departments, faculties, research, or athletic teams; any existing named awards; or you can create a personal legacy by establishing a named award yourself. By supporting scholarships and financial assistance, you can help to ensure access to all of the rewards of an Acadia education.

Roland and Leona Mullen Business Award

Award of up to $2,500 | Eligibility: Arts, Pure and Applied Science, Economics, Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan

The Roland & Leona Mullen Business Award is awarded annually on a renewable basis to a student entering the Bachelor of Business Administration degree program or the Bachelor of Arts degree program with a major in Economics. Preference will be given to a student from Western Canada (Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia) who demonstrates financial need; a commitment to entrepreneurship, community service and athletics.

The Award has been established by Kevin Mullen (B.A., Acadia, 1986) in recognition of his parents, Roland and Leona Mullen, entrepreneurs who own a Western Canadian family business. Kevin believes a student who demonstrates the qualities of entrepreneurship, community service and a commitment to athletics will represent the ideals valued by his parents and would like to ensure that students with these qualities continue to be represented at Acadia University.
