Scholarships & Financial Assistance

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.

1996 University Cup Champions Men’s Hockey Award

Eligible facultiesAthletics

This award was established in 2021 by members of the 1996 hockey Axemen. It is to be awarded to a returning men’s varsity hockey athlete who demonstrates leadership qualities on and off the ice, competitive spirit, community engagement, and is in good academic standing.

The recipient will be chosen by the Director of Athletics in consultation with head coach of the men’s varsity hockey program. The inaugural disbursement of funds will be for the 2021-2022 academic year. The 1995-1996 Acadia hockey Axemen captured Acadia’s second CIS hockey title in four years, with the ability to both steamroll the opposition and, when necessary, win the close games as well. The Axemen compiled a 19-6-1 regular-season record, then capped a 5-2 playoff run by edging the UPEI Panthers 7-6 in the deciding game of the conference final. At the University Cup in Toronto, Acadia edged Trois Rivieres 4-3 in the semi-final and Waterloo 3-2 in the final to win the national championship.
