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 George E. Bishop Volunteerism Scholar-Bursary is awarded on a renewable basis to entering or returning student(s) on the basis of financial need and academic performance. Preference will be given to all-around students who have demonstrated a commitment to their communities and/or non-profit organizations through volunteerism. The endowed scholar-bursary was established in 2005 by George E. Bishop (BCOM 1965), Chairman of the Board of Governors 1999-2004.
