Ford Fund believes education drives prosperity and scholarships can open doors to opportunities that make people’s lives better. That’s why Ford Fund awards millions of dollars in scholarships each year to highly motivated young people across the globe who are committed to academic success.

Ford Fund has developed strong partnerships with nonprofits and educational organizations worldwide to support students in their pursuit of education. While some scholarships are designed to propel students through a course of study, others fund a specific project. Always, the aim is to provide access to opportunities or resources students may not have had or known about.

All Ford Fund scholarship recipients become part of a global community of Ford Blue Oval Scholars – a network of high school seniors and college students distinguished for their leadership, hard work and commitment to making a difference in the world around them. Blue Oval Scholars stay connected with Ford Fund and each other via Facebook and LinkedIn.
