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 B.V.I Memorial Award is provided annually to a varsity football player who demonstrates quality of character both as a student and athlete. Preference will be given to a student with financial need and of Aboriginal or African descent. The award is on recommendation of the Head Football Coach and the Director of Varsity Athletics and may be renewed at their discretion. The Award is made available through a gift from Gordon B. Swinamer and is in memory and honor of his wife Barbara, his mother Vera, and his mother-in-law Irene.
