Welcome to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Assistance


We believe that an education at Acadia University may be one of the most valuable investments you will make for your future. We are very fortunate to have the support of generous donors who support with rewarding and assisting our qualified incoming and returning students.  In excess of $3.5 million is spent annually in the areas of scholarships, scholar-bursaries, bursaries, awards, and prizes to new and returning students. Awards cover a wide scope of academic pursuits, musical and athletic talents as well as community service and research activities. 

The Acadia University Senate-Scholarships, Prizes and Awards Committee (SPAC) decides policy and process in which recipients of the scholarships, prizes, bursaries and awards are to be selected.

To ensure all qualified applicants to Acadia have access to our university, we also offer need-based financial aid each year to qualifying students.
