Scholarships and Awards
Through the generosity of donors, the following are among the various scholarships, awards, and assistantships available to faculty and undergraduate students in the Department of English and Theatre.
Originally established in 2001 through the generosity of Dr. Peter Donat (B.Sc 1949, BA 1950, DCL 1994) and family, the Endowment was revised in 2017 to enhance the benefits it provides to students, faculty, and the community. The Peter Donat Visiting Artist Endowment supports travel, accommodation and honoraria for notable actors, directors, playwrights, musicians, and lighting designers to visit the Acadia campus to meet with and mentor students, to interact with faculty, and to conduct a master class, performance, and/or public presentation. Visiting artists will be selected by the Dean of Arts or designate, and invitations can be made on an annual or biennial basis.
The University offers various scholarships to incoming and current students, and, in addition, the Department of English and Theatre has several scholarships available only to students enrolled as English or Theatre majors. English recipients are chosen by a committee of English Department faculty members and Theatre recipients by a committee of Theatre faculty members.
