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.

John Frauzel Memorial Bursaries
The John Frauzel Memorial Bursaries are awarded annually to two Nova Scotia students attending Acadia University who exhibit financial need.
The endowed bursary was established in 2007 by The John and Judy Bragg Family Foundation, in consultation with the Frauzel Family, to honour Mr. John Frauzel (BSC Acadia 1950; BED Acadia 1951) who taught John Bragg at Oxford High School.
