As they live through a global pandemic, many Acadia Divinity College (ADC) students are facing financial strain and uncertainty. Their ability to continue to study and respond to God’s call will be negatively impacted precisely when our world increasingly needs people among us who are prepared to minister. President Anna Robbins stressed that “our priority at ADC is to support our students so they can continue to study, to be equipped to lead and serve. They need extra help in these unprecedented times.”
“The COVID-19 virus has changed many things in our world but it has not changed the need for Christian leaders who are prepared to serve. Nor has it changed ADC’s determination and ability to prepare men and women for the ministry the Lord has for them.” says Mr. Tom Rice, Chair of the Finance Committee of the ADC Board of Trustees. To meet this need, the ADC Board of Trustees and President have established the Acadia Divinity College COVID-19 Student Fund that will provide students with supplemental financial support for the 2020-2021 academic year. All students will receive a one-time bursary based on their student and enrolment status. In addition, $250 towards tuition will be granted to full-time graduate students. For those students facing greater need, the Dean of Students will administer an emergency aid fund; this financial assistance will be provided on an individual and confidential basis.
“We need your help to encourage and support our students so they are able to continue to study, to persevere and be ready to lead and serve in these most challenging times.” says Rev. John Campbell, ADC Director of Advancement.
