The Ford Empowering America Scholarship is made available thanks to the generosity of the AWM Foundation and its partnership with The Ford Motor Company.
If you are thinking about applying for the Ford Empowering America Scholarship, you would be glad to find out that the award actually consists of two grants, one $3,000 scholarship for a winning student and one $2,000 scholarship for a student selected as runner-up.
The scholarship money, if you happen to be the winner, will be made payable directly to your educational institute.
The money is not the only award the winner gets.
Both of them will also receive two tickets to attend the Gracies Leadership Awards event in the Fall.
In addition, the winning student will have to create two profiles/interview pieces for the AWM website over the 3rd and 4th quarters of the year with guidance from AWM staff.
The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation has recognized the importance of supporting education and opportunity since its establishment in 1960 and has been supporting young generations of women in media.
The Foundation’s mission is to use the media to create positive change, supporting educational programs, charitable activities, public service campaigns and scholarships that benefit students of the media and allied fields.
As a part of the application process, scholarship applicants are asked to profile or interview a female leader in their community, showcasing why and how this woman impacts those around her, with preference to subjects with ties to the media industry in some way.
How to Apply
The application form will become available on the scholarship provider’s official website once the application process opens with all the detail related to the supporting material that the applicant must submit and it is significant that all this is done prior to the deadline on April 1st.
If you submit the application after this moment or do not provide all the documents, it will not be taken into consideration.
The scholarship committee will review all the applications and select the best of the best candidate as a winner.
