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 E. Douglas Craig Scholarship is awarded annually to a student in the School of Education at Acadia University. Preference will be given to students from Nova Scotia.
This scholarship has been established by Mr. Craig’s family as a memorial to him. Evan Douglas Craig (BA, BED, MA, Acadia 1947, 1948, 1949) received many honours for his leadership on both the varsity football and hockey teams. He was inducted into Acadia’s Hockey Hall of Fame in 1995. He devoted his career to the education of young Nova Scotians with enthusiasm for the nurturing of young minds and respect for all.
