UNIONVILLE-CHADDS FORD COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIP
The Community Scholarship is a grant of a stated amount of money collected annually from the school community by open solicitation. Its purpose is to award the worthy student who wishes to continue his/her education following graduation from Unionville High School. The grant is for the first year of post-secondary work only and will be applied toward college costs (i.e., tuition, room and board). As many grants will be made annually as the treasury of the Community Scholarship can support. The categories for selecting recipients are cumulative grade point average (GPA) as of the end of the third quarter, the score on a timed, handwritten essay, and school activities verified in all four years. Students who have transferred to UHS should have previous school activities substantiated on an official transcript or document with the school seal from the former accredited high school. Essay date: TBD (will either be Feb. 27 or March 1 depending on facilities requests).
Deadline: Completed application due to Counseling Center by February 20, 2017.
