For over 50 years, the Unionville-Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund has provided scholarship aid to outstanding graduating seniors at Unionville High School.

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. Please consider contributing to the Unionville-Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund.


You can have your student drop off the donation to the High School Office in an envelope marked UCF Community Scholarship. We accept cash, change or if you would like, a check made payable to UCF Community Scholarship Fund.

Essay Camp
Darlene Brigance and Tricia Einstein are excited to offer their ninth season of summer college essay camp to rising seniors. What they love about this work is not just helping young people to write good essays and hone their writing skills - but helping them to discover something about themselves important enough to share. There are a few openings in our June 26th and August 7th week this coming summer.  Please contact Tricia Einstein at for more information.
