Ford Blue OvalTM Network
The Ford Blue Oval Network is a web-based network for college students participating in Ford-branded programs, both in the U.S. and around the world. This innovative opportunity connects Ford, program participants and leaders via this dedicated website, Facebook and LinkedIn.

The website is a great resource for those students to learn how to participate in key Ford Motor Company Fund initiatives and contests created for college students and high school seniors. You will find information about Ford Motor Company Fund’s education initiatives and signature programs, including Ford Blue Oval Scholars, Ford College Community Challenge, Ford Community Corps, Ford HBCU College Community Challenge and Ford Driving Dreams Scholarship Competition. The site is also designed to keep students apprised of additional scholarship opportunities, career information, volunteering tips and community service opportunities. Currently, more than 1,500 scholarship winners are connected to the site through our database.

As these programs move society forward and expand worldwide, students and educators seek ways to stay connected, expand connections not only to build careers, but also to strengthen communities with successful projects.

Camp Invention®
Ford Motor Company is a proud sponsor of Camp Invention — a program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. It is the only nationally recognized summer program focused on creativity, innovation, real-world problem-solving and the spirit of invention. Simply stated, Camp Invention is an exciting, weeklong summer adventure for children in grades K-6, with activities that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation.

The National Inventors Hall of Fame aims to bring the most cutting-edge STEM topics to all children. They provide grants to give underserved children the opportunity to experience Camp Invention. Our Ford Volunteer Corps lends a hand during the week at various Camp Invention programs throughout Michigan.

Since 1990, the National Inventors Hall of Fame’s educational programs have served more than 1.3 million children; in 2017 alone they served over 140,000 children, one third of whom were underserved. Ford is delighted to be supporting a program that is having such a profound impact on STEM education in America. Find out more information about the 2018 Camp Invention Program by clicking here.
