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 Ernest R. Hayes Award, provided by the family, friends and former students of Dr. Ernest R. Hayes (Acadia '48), a member of the Chemistry Department 1975-1991 and Head from 1975-81, supports a student attending the annual Atlantic Region Student Conference or the Annual conference of the Canadian Society for Chemistry. The student will present the results of research completed as part of the B.Sc. Honours program. The award is based on an oral presentation of the research project.
