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 Conrad (Connie) MacNeil Memorial Scholar-Bursary, given annually, on the recommendation of the Director or Athletics, to a well-rounded student entering the second or subsequent year of study at Acadia University who has had a positive impact on the Acadia and Wolfville communities. The recipient will have demonstrated a high level of leadership as a member of an Acadia varsity sports team and through his or her volunteer contributions. Preference will be given to a student from New Brunswick who plays varsity hockey.
The scholar-bursary was established in June of 2013 by the generosity of Mr. John T. Clark, BSc '52, DCL '10 through the J.T. Clark Family Foundation Inc. of Fredericton, New Brunswick in support of undergraduate post-secondary education and in an effort to memorialize alumnus Conrad (Connie) MacNeil, BA '53, BEd '54.
