FSAA Board Applications Now Available

Successful candidates from the 2017 FSAA board elections.

The Ford Scholar Alumni Association (FSAA) is currently recruiting applicants for six positions on the Board of Directors. FSAA began with the idea to continue Kenneth and Hallie Ford’s vision of creating an ongoing community of what he called “Ford Scholars for Life.” If you have a passion for helping others and want to connect with other Alumni while developing your personal and professional skills, then this is the opportunity for you!

Nominations are open for six positions on the FSAA Board:

  • Vice – President
  • Treasurer
  • (Four) Member At-Large positions

Ford Scholar, Restart, and Opportunity recipients are eligible to apply for any of the open positions.


No experience needed. You do NOT have to live in Oregon to serve; you can attend board meetings via teleconference or online video communications. Those elected will serve two-year terms and must be committed to virtually or physically attending quarterly board meetings. Board meetings are usually held in the Portland metro area, except for the Summer Board meeting, which is held in Eugene.
