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.

Louise Morse Warne Scholarship

Eligible facultiesArts

The Louise Morse Warne Scholarship is awarded on recommendation of the Faculty of Arts to returning undergraduate and/or Master’s students who have graduated from a Nova Scotia high school or were homeschooled at their residence in Nova Scotia as described by the Nova Scotia Department of Education. The awards, which may be renewed, will be made to students who have demonstrated superior ability and good qualities of leadership and character. Preference may be given to students majoring in English.

The scholarship was established in 2006 through the kindness and generosity of the estate of Louise Morse Warne. Louise Warne (B.A. Acadia 1924), of Digby, passed away on February 3, 2004, at the age of 100. She was born in West Paradise on February 24, 1903 and was the only daughter of the late Major J. Eugene and Edith Morse.
