- be enrolled full-time on the Bloomington campus
- be entering their 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year of undergraduate study
- maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.4 or above
- must not have received an HHC renewable merit scholarship as incoming freshmen
- must demonstrate financial need
- Special consideration given to applicants with unusual circumstances, challenges, or hardships
Applications are accepted year round. The average award amount is $1,000. If you are claiming a Ford Motor Company parent or spouse affiliation, you will be required to provide written verification of this affiliation. Please include the Ford Employment Verification Letter with your application.
