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 Great Wall Award is awarded annually to students from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Macao who have completed at least one full academic year of study at Acadia. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.33 and show levels of community contribution outside of the classroom. Preference will be given to students studying at the undergraduate level.
The award was established in 2006 by the Acadia Chinese Club.
