Awards and prizes are one-time donations to students given by an Acadia department or a donor.
At the end of each academic year after final exams in April, you're automatically considered for awards from your academic department or school (ex. Department of Biology, School of Education, etc.). These awards celebrate outstanding achievement, most improved students, community participation, etc.
While most awards do not require an application, you should check with your department/school to see whether they offer awards that do require an application. We will also email you to make you aware of opportunities to apply for awards.
We also offer awards and prizes created by generous Acadia alumni and their families. You do not need to apply for these awards, but they may be limited to a particular program or activity. For example, they may be awarded to students from a particular town or region, or to students in a certain program who have made an impact on the community, etc.
