Each year, the New Britain Civic Association awards a scholarship to a local graduating high school senior. The scholarship was created in memory of longtime New Britain Civic Association board member, Michael Havener.

The $500 scholarship is open to graduating seniors who are home-schooled or attend one of the following area high schools: Central Bucks West, Central Bucks East, Central Bucks South, Arch-Bishop Wood or Lansdale Catholic. The scholarship is awarded on a competitive basis.
