The Ford Family Foundation

The Ford Family Foundation offers a suite of financial and program resources in Oregon, Siskiyou County, Calif., and, in some cases, other regions. Many recipients enthusiastically declare that the Scholarship Programs are about “so much more than the money.” Our selection committees strive to select recipients whose past and potential are worthy of special support. We work to develop a long-term relationship with such students – not simply to bestow a financial scholarship.

Five Scholarship are available:
• Ford Scholars Program
• Ford Transfer Scholars Program
• Ford Opportunity Scholars Program
• Ford Restart Scholars Program
• Ford Sons and Daughters Program

Eligibility varies by scholarship. Please review the scholarship website for detailed eligibility requirements for each scholarship.
