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.

ASU Student Leadership Scholarship
The ASU Student Leadership Scholarship is awarded annually to one or more returning students who are nominees for an ASU Leadership Award and have made a significant contribution to student life at Acadia University both inside and outside the classroom while maintaining a recognizable academic standard. The scholarship was established in 2004 through generous contributions from Sodexho and the Acadia Students’ Union.
