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.

The Kristin Pipe Memorial Award is awarded annually on recommendation of the Director of Varsity Athletics and the Varsity Football Coach to a second or subsequent year Acadia varsity football player. The recipient should be committed to excellence both as a student and athlete while demonstrating exemplary leadership and dedication both on and off the field. The recipient will demonstrate similar characteristics to which made Kristin Pipe so special. The award is in memory of Kristin Pipe (BBA Acadia, 2003) who attended Acadia University from 1999 until 2004 and played quarterback. Kristin always put the team first and demonstrated outstanding leadership. He was a true champion and positive role model, who fought a private, personal health battle while at Acadia before passing away shortly thereafter in 2005 at the age of 26.
