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.

Medal | Eligibility: Professional Studies
The Bishop Silver Medal is awarded annually at Spring Convocation to the graduating student from the Faculty of Professional Studies whose standing is closest to that of the Governor General's medalist. The medal was established in 1983 in recognition of the many contributions made by the Bishop family to Acadia and especially in memory of Marianne Bishop Brotz (1946-1982).
