To encourage and recognize high scholastic achievement, Acadia University offers scholarships and awards to incoming students as well as scholarships, prizes, medals and awards to current students.
Incoming students will automatically be considered for entrance scholarships, provided they meet the criteria.
Current students will automatically be considered for most undergraduate scholarships for which they qualify. Some awards do require an application. We will email any eligible current students, asking if they would like to apply, and will provide the award details.
Students who have been awarded a renewable scholarship may have the award extended up to four years, provided they meet the criteria. We will consider renewal on an individual basis for those students who are graduating from a three-year program and plan to return for a fourth year of undergraduate study.
Acadia Divinity College students are ineligible for funding through these programs and should contact ADC directly with funding inquiries.

The Connie MacNeil Athletics Award is awarded annually to a student on a varsity athletics team at Acadia University. The award is on recommendation of the Director of Varsity Athletics.
The endowed award was established in 2007 by The John and Judy Bragg Family Foundation, in consultation with the MacNeil Family, to honour Mr. Conrad (Connie) MacNeil (BA Acadia 1952; BED Acadia 1953) who was one of John Bragg’s teachers at Oxford Regional High School. Connie was a proud Acadia Axeman hockey player from 1949 - 1953. Since returning to the Wolfville area in 1964, Connie has been closely involved with Acadia as a part-time staff member, Alumni board member (2001-2003) and was the founding chairman of the Acadia Blueline Club.
