Ford has always believed in giving back, and this past January the automaker gave back in a big way to teens in North Texas.
Ford Motor Company, along with North Texas Ford dealerships, gave $400,000 in scholarships to area high school students to pursue higher education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. So far, Ford has donated over $2 million in total to education, benefiting over 14,000 students in North Texas alone. Recipients of this latest round of scholarships will be recognized at the Ford Driving Dreams event in May 2016.
From the $400,000 in scholarships, individual students will receive $2,000 after applying and writing an essay answering the question, “What Drives Your Dream?”
Ford Motor Company invests over $8 million annually to education around the country. Alongside the Ford Driving Dreams program, students can benefit from a variety of other nationwide Ford academic programs, like Ford Blue Oval Scholars, Ford College Community Challenge, and Ford STEAM Lab.
Giving back is just another thing that Ford believes you should “Go Further” in.
