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 by Matthew Balsor (’11) in 2018, this scholar-bursary is granted in recognition of academic excellence and financial need to a full-time in-course undergraduate enrolled in the F.C. Manning School of Business. The recipient displays their well-rounded character through extracurricular activities in the community or on campus.
Matthew graduated from Acadia University with an Honours BBA and says, “I was fortunate enough to have my post-secondary education paid for through scholarships and bursaries and am in a position to be able to give back and help others who are working hard to help themselves.” Matthew furthered his credentials with a CIM and FCUIC, having worked in finance before returning to be employed at his alma mater.
