Ford Motor Company to Sponsor Students in Automotive Engineering
February 28, 2019
Ford Motor Company generously donated more than $80,000 in February to establish scholarships and fellowships in Automotive Engineering. The Ford Motor Company Scholarship is awarded to undergraduate students pursuing a Certificate/Minor in Automotive Engineering. Ford will help selected scholars gain industry insights and will participate in the annual CU-ICAR Awards Ceremony. This gift establishes Ford Motor Company as a sponsor in Clemson University’s AuE Certificate/Minor program.
In addition, the Ford Motor Company Fellowship in Automotive Engineering will be exclusively awarded to graduate students who have completed the Certificate/Minor program in Automotive Engineering and are now studying Automotive Engineering as a graduate student at Clemson University. This Fellowship will help support the professional development of students in AuE and will function as a recruitment tool to bring the best and brightest students to CU-ICAR.
The formation of these two programs will build on the relationship established with Ford as a significant recruiter of Clemson University graduates and through Ford’s sponsorship of Deep Orange 10 and URP projects (University Research Program).
