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 Dr. Frank H. Eaton Award was established in memory of the Rev. Dr. Frank H. Eaton, outstanding alumnus and long time member of the Senate and Board of Governors of Acadia University. The award is given on the recommendation of the Director of Athletics to a student entering their second, third or fourth year of undergraduate study at Acadia University who has given evidence of good academic achievement and leadership and has participated in varsity intercollegiate sport.
