The Ford Motor Company has established the William C. Ford, Jr. Scholarship Program to assist the children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
Helping support education opportunities for the children of our extended Ford family members continues to be extremely important to me. Over the years, I have heard from many of you and your children about the importance of the scholarship in achieving their goals and I look forward to offering the program once again in 2019.
The William Clay Ford, Jr. Scholarship program, which provides $1,500 in tuition assistance for children of U.S. Ford employees, is now open for enrollment. To qualify, students must be sophomores in college during the 2019 fall term.
While academics are important, understanding the value of giving back to the communities in which we live is also a priority. For this reason, we also incorporate a community service component to the selection criteria. I encourage everyone who is eligible to submit an application.
My thanks to those who have already participated in this program for your kind comments and support. Education has been a central element of Ford’s community involvement since we were founded. I am happy to bring that tradition to families inside the company as well. — Bill Ford
