The Partnership in Education Program recognizes the achievements of Bucks County public and technical high school seniors for their demonstrated community service, commitment to academic excellence and human services, and quality of character.

Program Overview

Every spring, FCP contacts the guidance department in each of Bucks County’s high schools with nomination instructions and the deadline for nominations. Each recipient demonstrates academic excellence and a commitment to human services in Bucks County for children, youth, and families. Scholarship recipients are notified by the end of April and recognized as part of each high school’s awards ceremony. Proceeds of the award may only be used for educational purposes, including payment of college tuition, books, and related expenses.
