How to Apply

If you are interested in the Ford Community Corps Partnerships, please review the steps outlined below:

1. Form your project idea. The Institute, in partnership with Ford, is interested in supporting project proposals that will be implemented during a Winter 2016 service-learning course More specifically, we want to support projects in which the students in those courses apply the knowledge gained in that course to help a non-profit organization.
