Description

The Ford Scholars Program is need-based and open to 1) graduating high school seniors and, 2) entering college freshmen and (3) continuing 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, California. 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.
