About the Bell Scholarship and Achievement Awards at Mount Allison University

Established in 2002 as the premier entrance scholarship at Mount Allison, the Bell Scholarship and Achievement Awards celebrate students who have demonstrated strong academic ability, leadership potential, volunteer work, extracurricular activities, work experience, and good citizenship.

Mount Allison students have benefited from the generous contributions to the University made by the Bell Family (and the Bell Endowment Funds) over the years. Their generous support, through such scholarships as the Marguerite Deinstadt scholarships, the Ralph Pickard Bell scholarships, Mary Emerancy Pickard scholarship and various bursaries, has helped finance the academic careers of hundreds of Mount Allison students over the past 50 years, with scholarships and other forms of financial support.
