Ford Thailand extended its Go Further Innovator 2015, an inaugural scholarship programme in partnership with the Population and Community Development Association (PDA).

The programme invites university students from the Bangkok Metropolitan area and eastern Thailand to submit short video clips under the theme of “Go Further – Go Forward for the Development of Thailand” for the opportunity to win 50 scholarships worth a total of Bt650,000. Submissions will be accepted through to February 5, 2016.

The programme is part of Ford’s commitment to support education for Thai students. This inaugural Go Further 2015 Scholarship will be promoted in partnership with the PDA and provide university students an opportunity to present their creative ideas through three-minute video clips. The submissions must be around Ford’s four core pillars of quality, green, safe and smart.

All finalists will have the opportunity to join Driving Skills for Life (DSFL), Ford’s flagship CSR programme that provides hands-on safe driving training to participants, in March 2016. The first 100 students to submit videos will also win souvenirs from Ford.

The results will be announced through and, and on Ford’s Thailand Facebook page on February 26, 2016.
