We have opportunities for FFA members that are either high school seniors or collegiate to qualify for the $1,000.00 scholarships that Ford Motor Company and local Ford Dealers offer. Attached is an excel sheet that matches Ford dealers by state to the local schools that they have selected to include in their search for scholarships.
To qualify student must:
Students getting the Ford signature are making themselves eligible for the Ford scholarship program. The National FFA begins with the highest dollar amount scholarship and goes down. Students that have the Ford signature will be included in the Ford scholarship after the higher dollar scholarships are awarded. They are increasing their odds of being a scholarship recipient, not limiting their application to only the Ford section.
Please work with advisors in getting the word out that all students should apply for National FFA scholarships and obtain their local Ford dealer signature. Students that do not have a participating Ford dealer should visit their local dealer for a signature to be included in the national search that Ford provides, for schools that do not have a participating dealer. There are 5 national Ford scholarships that will be awarded. Lets show Ford our appreciation for local scholarships to local students by having the largest turnout for applications to be signed this year!.
Scholarship applications must be complete, typed and postmarked no later than Thursday, February 15, 2007. Participating Ford dealers will be updated and posted, as well as the application is available on the www.ffa.org website under scholarships. Thank you in advance for spreading the word about these opportunities.
