Are you a college grad who is within three years of your graduation from an accredited program? Ford Motor Company wants to make it easier for you to finance your vehicle. The automotive brand has long been a supporter of higher education, given their other college graduate programs. They have provided recent college grads with a variety of job assignments within their company for 24-36 months to help them develop professional skills after a lifetime in school. Now, they're doing more to help college graduates out: offering easier financing opportunities.
