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 Davis Scholar-Bursary is awarded annually to an entering student on the basis of financial need and academic performance. Awards will be given to well-rounded students from Nova Scotia, with preference given to students from western Nova Scotia.
The scholar-bursary has been funded in memory of Samuel Bancroft Davis (BA Acadia 1930) and his wife Orris Mary Fillmore (Class of 1938 Acadia). “Banny”, born in Yarmouth, and Orris, originally from Moncton, were both devoted supporters of Acadia University.
