ASVAB Career Exploration Program
Ford Family Foundation Scholarship
WHAT IS THE SCHOLARSHIP?
- Supports students who have significant financial barriers to college
- Award amount is calculated on college cost of attendance (tuition, fees, room and board, personal costs, etc.), minus other grants and scholarships
- In addition to a generous financial award, Scholars receive academic guidance, leadership development, personal and professional support, and access to the Ford Family alumni network
- Renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study
The Ford Family Foundation's goal is to assist students who otherwise would find it impossible, or at least very difficult, to obtain a college degree.
Using Schoolinks to apply to colleges
Seniors, you will be asked, at some point, to provide an official transcript to the colleges you're applying to. You will need to follow one of these tip sheets to have it sent, via parchment, within your Schoolinks account.
