With the automotive industry still mourning the death of William Clay Ford, Ford Fund decided to announce a $1 million dollar scholarship that will benefit automotive design students. For the next 20 years, Ford Fund is committing $50,000 per year, giving five deserving automotive design students $10,000 each. The idea is to commemorate and honor the memory of the late William Clay Ford.
The $1 million William Clay Ford Automotive Design Scholarship will hopefully begin soon, although details haven’t been announced quite yet. It will be awarded annually to exceptional college sophomores and juniors pursuing degrees in automotive design. Ford decided this was the best way to honor William Clay Ford, since he served as chairman of the design committee at Ford for 32 years as part of his 57 years of commitment to the company.
At Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford, we are happy that Ford has decided to commemorate William Clay Ford with the $1 million William Clay Ford Automotive Design Scholarship to help young adults follow in his footsteps. Keep checking back for details regarding this tremendous opportunity!
