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 D. F. Higgins Scholarship in Mathematics was established by the late Mr. George F. Higgins of Pasadena, California, in memory of his father, the late Professor D.F. Higgins of Acadia University. This scholarship will be awarded to that second year student who has made the highest average in mathematics during the first and second years and continues in mathematics during the junior and senior years.
