Every student should have the opportunity to dream big. Ford Driving Dreams helps make that a reality. Ford Motor Company Fund is dedicated to helping students Go Further both in and out of the classroom. Since 2012, Ford Driving Dreams (FDD) has equipped more than 200,000 students across the U.S., Puerto Rico, Latin America, and Europe with tools to help fuel their academic and career journeys.
