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.

Established in 2017 by Dr. Robert Hiscott in memory of Dr. Eleanor Chu (’80, ’81), this scholarship is awarded to full-time undergraduate students of high academic standing enrolled in a Mathematics or Physics degree program.
Born in 1950 in Taiwan, Eleanor Chu received her BSc in Agricultural Chemistry (1973) from the National Taiwan University. She then pursued studies in Physics and Mathematics at Acadia, earning a BSc (’80) and a MSc in Mathematics (’81). Further graduate studies in Computer Science at the University of Waterloo saw her receive a MMath (1984) and PhD (1988). Dr. Chu’s academic career began at the University of Waterloo (1988-1991) and continued at the University of Guelph (1991-2008) where she was promoted to Full Professor in 2001.
Dr. Chu was particularly grateful and appreciative for the wonderful, inspiring mentorship received from the faculty of Acadia University, especially Professor Fred Chipman who introduced her to the field of numerical analysis and supervised her MSc thesis
