Scholarship Programs

We See Your Potential.

On This Page

The Ford Family Foundation offers a suite of financial and program resources in Oregon, Siskiyou County, Calif., and, in some cases, other regions. Many recipients enthusiastically declare that the Scholarship Programs are about “so much more than the money.” Our selection committees strive to select recipients whose past and potential are worthy of special support. We work to develop a long-term relationship with such students – not simply to bestow a financial scholarship.

We Offer Four Scholarship Programs

  1. Graduating high school seniors, AND
  2. Community college students who are seeking a bachelor’s degree and are ready to transfer to a four-year college.
