The Built Ford Tough scholarship program was the first FFA dealer program. During the past 20 + years Ford Motor Company and it’s dealers have awarded more than $11.8 million in scholarships to FFA members. Ford offers up to 500 dealer-matched scholarships with no maximum per dealer.

To be awarded a $1,000 Built Ford Tough scholarship, a member’s chapter has to be chosen by a local dealer.

Members apply online and once their application is approved by their adviser, the member receives a signature page to print. Members must take the signature page into their local sponsoring Ford dealer for a signature and dealer code. Members upload a copy into their scholarship application to complete eligibility. Don’t have a participating dealer? You can still print your signature page and take it to any local Ford dealer for an endorsement for a chance to be awarded one of 5 Ford Corporate Scholarships.

Find your local Ford dealer.

*Important note: scholarships are subject to change each year.
