Ford Motor Company Fund Announces New Program to Help Latino Students Increase High School Graduation Rates
Deadline: May 21, 2010

The Ford Motor Company Fund and the League of United Latin American Citizens have announced a partnership to help address the high school dropout rate among Latino students across the United States.

Under the new program, Ford Driving Dreams Through Education, ten LULAC Councils will receive grants to develop projects that provide local approaches to this important issue. Each of the ten LULAC Councils selected will receive up to $20,000 from the Ford Motor Company Fund to support implementation of their projects during a period covering two school years. The winning councils will engage their communities through creative, localized, and sustainable programs that take into account their respective educational issues, resources, and support systems.

For more information about Ford Driving Dreams through Education, or to submit a proposal, visit the LULAC Web site.
