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.

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.
