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.

Seamone Family Bursary

Eligible facultiesPure and Applied Science
Eligible subjectsApplied Science

The SEAMONE FAMILY BURSARY is awarded annually to a returning student in the Certificate or Bachelor of Applied Science programs at Acadia. Preference will be given to a student from Nova Scotia, who along with financial need and solid academic standing, has demonstrated an applied approach to problem solving and interacts well with fellow students and faculty. The award is made on recommendation of the Director of the Ivan Curry School of Engineering.

The bursary was established in 2011 and was made possible through the generosity of Douglas A Seamone (CAS, Acadia, 1955) of Kentville, Nova Scotia. Mr. Seamone served on the faculty of the School of Engineering from 1962 to 1998 and family members have attended Acadia since the 1940’s.
