Ford Opportunity Program
The Ford Opportunity Program is need-based and designed for single parents who are "head of household," without the support of a domestic partner, and who are seeking a bachelor’s degree. This program is available to residents of Oregon or Siskiyou County, California.
Hallie E. Ford (1905-2007), a founder of The Ford Family Foundation, established the Ford Opportunity Program to assist single parents in obtaining a bachelor's degree. She realized that students who are parents have many extra responsibilities. She was determined to help them by providing financial assistance and encouragement.
Students with existing bachelor's degrees are not eligible for Ford Family Scholarships.
