The Foundations Community Partnership has awarded scholarships to 19 high school seniors in Bucks County. Each student will receive a $1,000 toward his or her college education.
As they do each year, school counselors at participating high schools nominated select students to FCP. They based this decision on community service, academic performance, and quality of character.
Ron Bernstein, founding executive director of Foundations Community Partnership, noted this year was unusual because schools are closed due to the pandemic.
“We are gratified that our local high schools were all able to participate in our scholarship program, even though they are working remotely due to the pandemic,” said Bernstein. “Students who have served as community volunteers and leaders deserve to be recognized, encouraged to work toward positive change after high school graduation and awarded scholarship money to continue their great work.”
