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 W.T. Pound Family Scholarship recognizes excellence and achievement in the study of ecology. The scholarship is presented at the end of each academic year, upon the recommendation of the Head of the Department of Biology, to an Environmental Science programme honours student completing the third or fourth year, enrolled in one or more ecology courses. Preference will be given to a student whose studies focus on ecology. This scholarship was established in remembrance of Jessie Edith and William Thomas Pound; they are honoured by the family they created and encouraged.
