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: Pure and Applied Science, Chemistry, Current 3rd year
The Chemical Institute of Canada has established a medal of recognition to be awarded annually to the third year student who has the best record in chemistry (including physics and mathematics) and continues into the fourth year at Acadia University.
Medal | Eligibility: Pure and Applied Science
The Chipman Silver Medal is awarded annually at Spring Convocation to the graduating student from the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science whose overall average is closest to that of the Governor General's medallist. The medal was established in 1986 in recognition of the many contributions made by the Chipman family to Acadia and especially to honour the memory of Richard Leverett DeVeber Chipman (B.A. Acadia, 1903; M.A., 1904; M.D.C.M. McGill, 1908).
