Henry Ford Scholarship

The House has approved an education bill that would create math and science scholarships named after Ford Motor Co. founder Henry Ford.
The scholarship program will help high-achieving students interested in pursuing undergraduate degrees in math, science, engineering and health-related fields.
It was part of an education bill that was approved Thursday. It now moves to the Senate.
Students pursuing a math or science-related major who finish their first year with at least a 3.0 GPA will be eligible. The scholarships will provide $5,000 a year and up to $20,000 per student.
Michigan Congressman Joe Knollenberg, who sponsored the legislation, said he named the scholarship after the automotive pioneer because the nation needs more innovators like Ford to compete with China and India.

    Ford has their name on too much stuff as it is...if Ford wants their name on it, then Ford should pay for the whole program (Scholarships admin fees) not taxpayers..Why don't we call it the "US Citizen Competitive Scholarship?" That seems more fitting. Oh, and you have to be a US Citizen to get the scholarship. Let's not give it just to high-acheiving people, either...usually lazy people (myself included) find the easiest, and cheapest way to do things with better results.
