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.

Established in 2017 on the 40th anniversary of the class of 1977, this bursary is awarded to a third or fourth year Canadian student in any full-time program in recognition of financial need and future potential to exemplify the Acadia spirit. The recipient is hardworking, focused, socially engaged, committed to excellence in their pursuits, and determined to gain every possible benefit from an Acadia education and to use that education to make a difference in the world.
