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 Edgar Emerson Eaton Scholarship. Through the generosity of Mrs. Edgar Emerson Eaton of Elmhurst, New York, the Governors of Acadia University have received an endowed scholarship with an annual value of $200 in memory of her husband, the late Edgar Emerson Eaton, a man of rare character, poise and courage, and a student of versatile interests. Mr. Eaton was a native of Kings County, a former student of Acadia University, and son of David Rupert Eaton, a former Governor of the University. The income from the fund is to be awarded to that male student of Kings County, Nova Scotia, who, in the judgment of the faculty, gives evidence of worthy scholastic standing, fine personality and character.
