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 Rotary Club of Wolfville-Acadia University Award will be awarded annually on a renewable basis to a student who is a graduate of the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board, and who is entering the first year of a degree or certificate program at Acadia University. The eligible student must possess an outstanding high school academic record and demonstrate a “Rotary Spirit” via evidence of community service and/or leadership initiatives that have positively affected the quality of life of others. Preference will be given to students who exhibit financial need.
The award is provided by The Rotary Club of Wolfville in partnership with Acadia University to ensure that outstanding local candidates have an opportunity to attend university.
