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.

Class of 1962 Memorial Scholar-Bursary

Eligible subjectsEnvironmental and Sustainability Studies

The Class of 1962 Memorial Scholar-Bursaries are awarded annually to an entering student and a returning student in the Environmental and Sustainability (ESST) program who both aspire to a career in this field. Along with strong academic results and financial need, the recipients will have demonstrated an interest and commitment through activities/projects to sustain and protect the environment. The recipients will be chosen on the recommendation of the ESST Faculty Council.

These Scholar-Bursaries were established and made available through the generosity of the Class of 1962 as part of their 50th Reunion celebration, May 2012. They are dedicated to the memory of their classmates who have passed away since graduating from Acadia.
