Ford Fund Scholars Ford Fund

Launched seven years ago, the Ford Blue Oval Scholarship program is designed to address the issue of high school students who drop out before graduating. Each year, Ford Motor Company and its philanthropic arm, Ford Motor Company Fund, award $100,000 in scholarships to 160 high school seniors in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw counties. The goal is to help students expand their opportunities for success by attending an institution of higher learning – college, technology school, training program or alternate education program.

The Ford Blue Oval Scholarship program is part of the $10 million Ford invests each year in educational programs and initiatives to drive a brighter future around the world.
