February 28th, 2020 – Ford Motor Company Fund, the philanthropic arm of Ford Motor Company, is offering an opportunity for college students, alumni, faculty and administrators at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) to submit an innovative proposal that addresses mobility need on campus or in their community.

“It was an honor to award our inaugural winner, Langston University with the first grant under the HBC-You challenge,” said Pamela Alexander, Director Ford Motor Company Fund Community Development. “We are proud to continuously partner with the HBCU community to improve mobility while giving the HBCU community to showcase their talents and innovation .





The Ford HBC-You Mobility Challenge is a special initiative of Ford Motor Company Fund – the philanthropic arm of Ford Motor Company. Its purpose is to challenge students, alumni, faculty and administrators to design innovative mobility-based projects that address critical campus or community needs consistent with charitable purposes. With the theme of “Making Lives Better: Changing the Way We Move Through Smart Mobility,” the challenge was created to empower HBCU students, alumni, faculty and administrators to collaborate on creating and implementing sustainable solutions that address unmet needs and improve the lives of individuals within their communities.

Ford Motor Company Fund understands the role it plays in providing access to services that address basic needs, economic growth and help improve quality of life.
