The Ford Scholar

Ford is launching a new scholarship scheme to mark its 100th year of UK trading.

In an initiative Henry Ford would have been proud of, the firm has created the Ford Blue Oval Scholarship Programme, which provides £1m to 100 university students, aiming to nurture a new generation of engineers, scientists and innovators.

And with university fees set to treble to a potential £9,000 a year, the program will give each student £10,000 a year to study science, engineering, manufacturing and technology at some of the top universities in the UK over a three-year period.

Joe Greenwell, chairman of Ford of Britain, said: ‘The Ford Blue Oval Scholarship Programme will help encourage young people to study engineering, science and technology at university. These skills are fundamental to our future industrial base, the rebalancing of the UK economy and long term economic success.’
