The Ford Motor Company Fund and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) last week announced the recipients of the 2017 Ford Driving Dreams grants and scholarships, which total $400,000. The financial support will help programs that encourage high school graduation and allow students to pursue college.

“Ford Fund is very proud of its collaboration with LULAC,” says Ford Motor Company Fund Manager Joe Avila. “Together we provide invaluable resources to help the councils build a stronger and brighter future for thousands of students in their own communities. Education has long been a priority for Ford and we remain committed to helping our young people advance in school and reach their academic dreams.”

Eight LULAC Councils across the country have been given $20,000 grants to implement two-year educational programs, while Council #2862 in Sacramento, California and Council #313 Chicago, Illinois have been given $10,000 renewal grants to support their existing programs for another year.

Since its inception in 2010, Ford Driving Dreams has invested more than $1.3 million into education, Ford says.
