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 Clara Marshall Raymond Scholarships. Funds were originally provided by Miss Mary Raymond of New York City in memory of her mother, Mrs. Clara Marshall Raymond, the first woman graduate of Acadia (Class of 1884). Additional funds were provided during the one hundredth anniversary of the graduation of the first woman from Acadia. Two scholarships of $1475 each are awarded to women at the end of year three for support in year four. Recipients must have superior academic records and show qualities of good character and leadership.
