Designing for the Future Competition 2014
Ford Motor Company Fund and Lawrence Technological University are launching the 2014 edition of their “Designing for the Future Competition”, with over $100,000 in scholarships to be awarded.
The contest is open to high school seniors or transfer students interested in receiving an award to Lawrence Tech’s Transportation Design or Industrial Design programs.
Participants may choose between two different themes based around the Ford Bronco:
Track A – Automotive Proposal
Design a “back to basics” vehicle that is equally comfortable on the farm and in the city. Designs should accommodate 2 to 4 passengers and will be off-road capable and on-road drivable. Consider Ford SUV and truck DNA when creating your proposal.
Truck B: Product proposal
Identify products that would appeal to Bronco customers, such as: tools, shoes, furniture, luggage, pens, watches, etc. Design 2 innovative products emphasizing the rugged feeling and character of the Ford Bronco.
- Register within Monday October 07, 2013;
- apply to Lawrence Technological University by Friday November 08, 2013;
- submit their works by Monday November 11, 2013.
Over $100,000 in scholarships will be awarded to students completing the admissions process and submitting a design proposal in either the automotive or product track.
Scholarships are only valid for students enrolling and starting program in Fall 2014 at LTU’s Transportation Design or Industrial Design program.
