The Ford Motor Co. Fund has made a $1 million donation over the next five years to the College for Creative Studies (CCS) to establish the Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies (HFA: SCS) College and Career Transitions Office at CCS. The donation will establish the Ford Blue Oval Scholarship, which will give assistance to students graduating HFA: SCS and attending CCS. HFA: SCS is a public charter middle and high school in the Detroit area created through a partnership between CCS and the Henry Ford Learning Institute. This donation continues the partnership between the Ford Motor Co. Fund and HFA: SCS to promote art and design education. In October 2012, an automotive design club was established by Ford, where students of HFA: SCS learned transportation design from Ford designers, their own teachers, and CCS Transportation Design students.
