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 Robert C. Swim Memorial Scholarship ($140) is provided through the generosity of his wife, Ola Swim. The scholarship is awarded annually to a worthy student entering Acadia from West Kings District High school. Robert Swim (B.A. Acadia, 1926; M.A., 1940) spent many years serving the youth of Nova Scotia through the high schools and YMCAs as teacher and administrator.
