Ford Fund Awards $1M Automotive Design Scholarships

Ford Fund Awards $1M Automotive Design Scholarships

ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. — Ford Motor Company Fund will honor the late William Clay Ford, former chairman of Ford's design committee, by awarding $1 million in automotive design scholarships to students. Ford Fund will distribute $50,000 per year over the next 20 years, giving five deserving automotive design college students $10,000 in scholarship money each year.

Mr. Ford served 57 successful years as an employee and board member at Ford Motor Company, transforming vehicle design with his creative vision and setting the direction of Ford's design process with his passionate soul. The development of one of the greatest cars ever built, the iconic Lincoln Continental Mark II, was because of Mr. Ford and a group of engineers and designers that he led. The Ford Fund scholarships will encourage and support the future generations in pursuing their dreams in automotive design. As Ford Fund awards $1 million in automotive design scholarships, the dreams of automotive students everywhere are that much closer to becoming a reality. More details of the William Clay Ford scholarship program will be available in the upcoming months.
