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.

MacNeily Family Bursary
The MacNeily Family Bursary will be awarded annually to an entering or returning student to a degree program in the Faculty of Arts. Preference will be given to all round students involved with school life. This bursary was established in May 2009 by Ian MacNeily (BA Acadia, 1981) in memory of Murray MacNeily (BSc, Acadia 1954) and Jack MacNeily (BSc, Acadia, 1949; BEd, Acadia 1951)
