Students Impacted

The Ford Driving Dreams Tour has helped more than 100,000 hardworking students reach their academic and career dreams through extensive programming, targeted initiatives and motivational events.

The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics took notice. Ford Driving Dreams was selected as one of its “Bright Spots in Hispanic Education” for efforts targeting high school dropout rates. Ford Driving Dreams continues to grow and expand, reaching students nationally and internationally.

Pep Rallies

Nothing gets students fired up quite like a pep rally! Motivational speakers share their personal, inspiring stories, offer unique perspectives and encourage younger generations to continue working hard, pushing themselves and reaching for the stars.

During each pep rally, middle and high school students learn about the essay contest and other opportunities and resources available to them through the Ford Driving Dreams Tour initiative.

Essay Contest

What drives your dreams? Ford Motor Company Fund wants to know.

The essay contest invites middle and high school students to share their academic and career goals while also reinforcing the importance of education and giving back to their communities.

At Ford, we fully believe that no dream is too big or too small. Enter the essay contest, share your aspirations and let us reward you for having the courage to write your own success story.

Disclaimer: Only students from schools participating in the tour can compete in the essay contest.
