A new vehicle is a significant investment for anyone, especially those who are in college or recent graduates. Knowing this, Ford wants to make it easier on the wallet for those individuals and offers a student discount program called Ford Drives U. With this new incentive program, eligible students and recent graduates receive $750 bonus cash toward a new Ford vehicle.  Who doesn’t love free money? 


Those eligible for the Ford Drives U program include: 


  • Current undergrad students– Full- or half-time at an accredited college, junior college, community college, or trade school 

  • Current grad students– Enrolled at an accredited graduate school program 

  • Recent graduates– Within three years of graduation 

  • High school students with the intent to attend higher education– Current seniors or recent graduates with a letter of intent to a qualified college or other program 

  • College Student Internships Participants 

  • Trade School Apprenticeship Participants 

  • Medical Student Residency Participants 


In order to confirm eligibility, you will need to supply proof of recent graduation or current enrollment by submitting appropriate documentation such as a copy of your transcripts, recent diploma, or letter from the school registrar confirming enrollment. The student’s full name and school must be listed as an original part of provided documentation for eligibility.  


Unfortunately, there are some categories that are not eligible for the Ford Drives U program, which include: 


  • Those students enrolled less than half time based on the specifications of an accredited College/University/Trade School.  

  • One-course completion certificates. 

  • On-the-job training courses (i.e. sales training, teaching certificates, professional designations and adult education courses). 

  • English as a second language courses do not qualify
