  • Scholarship Description
  • The Ford Scholars Program was created by Kenneth W. Ford (1908-1997), a founder of The Ford Family Foundation, to assist students who otherwise would find it impossible, or at least very difficult, to obtain a college degree without financial assistance. Mr. Ford established the Foundation to help a number of worthy causes, but the Ford Scholars Program was always one of his favorite projects.

    The Ford Scholars Program is need-based and open to graduating high school seniors and community college students ready to transfer to a four-year college, who are seeking a bachelor’s degree in Oregon or California. This program is available to residents of Oregon and Siskiyou County, Calif.

    Eligibility:
    -Be a resident of Oregon or Siskiyou County, CA
    -Be either a graduating high school senior, high school graduate (or the equivalent) and never have enrolled full-time in a 2 or 4 college, or a community college student ready to transfer as a junior to a 4 year college in the fall
    -Students already enrolled full-time in a 4 year college are not eligible
    -Enroll full-time, on campus, in the fall of the application year at an accredited, public or private, nonprofit college or university in their home state
    -Minimum 3.0 GPA
    -Subject to a background check
