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 Edward Manning Saunders Scholarship in Arts ($235), being half of the interest on an endowment set up by the late Hon. William Dennis of Halifax, Nova Scotia, is to be awarded to a student in Arts at the end of the third year. The selection is to be made by the Dean of Arts, the Chairperson of the scholarship committee, and the heads of the departments concerned. The scholarship will be applied on the fees of the senior year.
