William Clay Ford, Sr. passed away earlier this month, now Ford has announced that the name and design legacy of Henry Ford's grandson will live on in the form of scholarships for the next generation of minds conceiving the future of transport. For the next 20 years, the $1 Million William Clay Ford Automotive Design Scholarship will award $10,000 each year to five college sophomores and juniors working toward degrees in automotive design.
During Ford's 57 years with the company, he oversaw the design of the Lincoln Continental Mark II and was the first chairman of the company's design committee, a position he held for 32 years until his retirement.
We'll get more details on the scholarship "in the coming months." In the meantime, the press release below has more information.Permalink | Email this | Comments
