Ford Scholars for Life

With 25 years of Ford Scholars, Ford Opportunity and Ford ReStart scholarships awarded, our alumni community numbers more than 3,500 strong throughout Oregon, the Pacific Northwest and the world. 

The Ford Scholar Alumni Association provides opportunities to connect where you are and lead where you live. 

There are many ways to be involved and give back through service by sharing your time and talent. The Alumni Association hosts alumni networking and professional development events and impacts communities through service and giving. All Scholars become members of the Alumni Association upon completing the scholarship program, at no cost. This is one way the Foundation supports Ford Scholars for Life. Visit to:

My Ford Family allows you to find alumni based on geography, industry, and university attended, and find opportunities to network, be involved, or become a mentor to an alumnus or Scholar.

Graduate Scholarship for Alumni 

We See Your Potential.

Ford Scholars, Ford Opportunity Scholars, or Ford ReStart Scholars who excel in their undergraduate program may apply for a graduate scholarship to continue on to a master’s or doctoral program. To qualify, Scholars must submit an application and begin their program within 10 years from the year they were first awarded their Ford Family scholarship. Graduate scholarships are competitive and not everyone who qualifies and applies will be awarded. For more information about the graduate scholarship log into your scholarship account at
