Giving to Acadia

Scholarships and 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.

The Gmeiner Memorial Scholarship was established by alumni, friends and family in memory of Eugen F. Gmeiner, a distinguished graduate of the University of Michigan (M. Music, 1967) and winner of the National Organ Competition in Fort Wayne, Indiana (1962), the only Canadian yet to achieve this distinction. Professor Gmeiner was a member of the faculty of Acadia University from 1956 to 1977 and was University Organist from 1957.

The scholarship is awarded on the recommendation of the University organist, in consultation with the Director of the School of Music, to an organ major, but failing that, to another keyboard major in the Bachelor of Music program at the end of year three or four to assist with master class costs.
