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 Charles Elmer Stevens Memorial Bursary is awarded annually to a student who is in need of financial assistance. Preference will be given to a student from the Moncton, New Brunswick area. The bursary is made possible by an endowment received from the late Edna Doris Taylor of Halifax, Nova Scotia in memory of her late husband, Mr. Stevens (B.Sc. 1937) commemorating his fondness for Acadia University.
