About Us

Every student should have the opportunity to dream big. Ford Driving Dreams helps make that a reality.

Ford Motor Company Fund is dedicated to helping students Go Further both in and out of the classroom. Since 2012, Ford Driving Dreams (FDD) has equipped more than 200,000 students across the U.S., Puerto Rico, Latin America, and Europe with tools to help fuel their academic and career journeys.

As a Ford Motor Company Fund signature education initiative, Ford Driving Dreams is committed to making people’s lives better by empowering students of all ages to achieve success. For elementary school students, FDD delivers new books and literacy initiatives to inspire children’s love of reading. For middle and high school students, FDD provides scholarship and entrepreneurship funding, leadership and networking programs, career-building activities, college preparedness tools and motivational events to keep driving their dreams of the future.

Ford Driving Dreams continues to support students to help them reach their educational goals in the midst of the COVID-19 challenges. FDD rewarded students virtually through interactive ceremonies. The LULAC FDD Grants program was adapted to support students and their families during these challenging times. Our goal at Ford Fund is to continue to inspire students by providing educational resources, while navigating through the pandemic.
