Through a unique partnership with the community in South Florida, the Miami-Dade and Broward County Ford and Lincoln Dealers have awarded over $3.8 million in scholarships to more than 4,500 deserving public and private high school seniors in both counties.
Salute to Education, Inc., established in 1994, is a non-profit organization funded through dealership contributions and support from the Ford Fund. In addition, the program receives support from a Scholarship Committee composed of Ford and Lincoln dealers and business, educational and civic leaders who take time out of their schedules to judge the scholarship applications. Community volunteer participation has been an integral part of the campaign’s success.
Salute to Education is one of South Florida’s largest private scholarship foundations.
