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 William Hall Heritage Scholarship is awarded by VANSDA to provide financial assistance for two African Nova Scotian youth residing in the Annapolis Valley (from Windsor to Digby) so that they will be encouraged to continue their post-secondary education at Acadia University immediately following completion of graduation requirements set by the Nova Scotia Department of Education.
Acadia University will provide matching funds up to $1,000 to each recipient, to a maximum of two awards annually once they are registered as a full time student at Acadia University.
