Scholarships and Financial Assistance

A university education renders a huge return, especially in career earnings (more than $1,400,000.00 over the course of your working life). We also understand, however, that the initial investment is a big one. As your partner in education, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to attend Acadia. Each year, we offer more than $4 million in scholarships, scholar-bursaries, bursaries, awards, and prizes to new and returning students.

This section outlines the awards we offer throughout your years at Acadia. We distribute up to 3,000 awards each year. These awards cover a wide scope of academic pursuits, musical and athletic talents as well as community service and research activities. We also offer awards based on demonstrated financial need. You can view a complete list of our Scholarships and Awards.

External agencies also offer awards – corporations, community organizations and churches are sources you can check. We’ve included links to external awards sites to help you in your search.
