2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for hundreds of college-bound students across Texas, California,Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Panama—many of whom will be the first in their families to pursue higher education—thanks to scholarships presented by FordFund’s signature education initiative, Ford Driving Dreams(FDD).FDD was designed to open doors and provide opportunities for students who aspire to go to college but may not have the resources to make those dreams a reality. Inspiring the next generation of leaders means equipping first generation students with the tools to mobilize their academic journeys.Since the program began in 2012, FDD has reached75,000+ students and delivered more than $3 million in educational resources. FDD operates in markets with a high concentration of Latinos and teams up with partners and local Ford dealers to most effectively meet community needs. Ford Driving Dreams expects to award more than$500,000 in scholarships and prizes in 2017.For more information visit www.forddrivingdreams.com.
