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.

Bursary | Eligibility: Business Administration
The Gordon L. MacKinnon Memorial Bursary was established in 1993 by Mrs. Irene (Clements) MacKinnon, Acadia '32, in memory of her husband, Gordon L. MacKinnon, Horton '29 (1909 1992). Mr. MacKinnon was a partner with Crowell, Balcom & Co. (later Riddell, Stead and Co.). The bursary is available to a Nova Scotian student who is enrolled in the School of Business Administration and who has demonstrated need for financial assistance.
