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 Isaac Chipman Scholarship. An award of $470 a year awarded every second year for two years, was endowed by Mrs. Murray R. Chipman of Montreal, Quebec, to honour the memory of Isaac Chipman, scientist and humanist and one of the co founders of Acadia. It is to be awarded not earlier than the end of the second year to a student with high standing and great promise with a view to assisting them to complete the University course, the scholarship to be a credit one half on the fees of the junior year and one half on the fees of the senior year. Failure to maintain high standing throughout the junior year will result in the forfeiture of the scholarship during the senior year.
