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.

The R. Byrns Curry Scholarship is awarded annually to one or more students entering the third or fourth year of undergraduate study or to graduate students who have demonstrated financial need. Preference will be given to students who have shown a distinct and meaningful interest in Canadian public affairs. The scholarship may be renewed up to two times.
The scholarship was established in 2004 through the generosity of the late R. Byrns Curry.
