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 scholarship, established in 1978, is provided by Allan A. Reid, B.Comm. McGill, 1953, (father of Clifford A. Reid, B.A., B.Ed. Acadia, 1971), in response to a suggestion of his late wife, Camille, nee Delorme, who had high regard for Acadia's School of Music and loving affection for her late father-in-law.
