The Ford Leadership Scholars program is a result of the Texas FFA Foundation, Ford Division and Texas Ford Dealers partnership to enhance the leadership opportunities of Texas FFA members.

Each year the program selects ten new scholars. The criterion for selection is based upon six characteristics of leadership: action, relationships, vision, character, awareness and continuous improvement.

The scholars participate in a week long training seminar prior to state convention. During that time they will select a leadership project to work on during the fall semester. Each scholar is assigned a mentor who will assist the scholar through their leadership project during the fall semester. In January, each scholar will present his or her project results to the entire group for evaluation. If completed successfully, the scholar will have effectively completed the Ford Leadership Scholars program.

The scholars have a tremendous opportunity to grow as leaders through the training they will receive, the relationship with their mentor and the exposure they will have to key business and industry leaders. After completing the program, past participants will be targeted as candidates for internships in agriculture industry and policy development. Ford Scholars Alumni will be promoted to industry leaders throughout Texas and during the Texas legislative session.
