Ford Scholar, Restart, and Opportunity recipients are eligible to apply for any of the open positions. We look forward to having more Ford Opportunity and Ford Restart applicants this year to help strengthen representation across all alumni programs participating in the Ford Scholar Alumni Association.
Those elected will serve two-year terms and must be committed to attending quarterly board meetings and sit on a committee which meets monthly. The quarterly board meetings are held in different locations each quarter: Portland metro area (January) , Various location (Spring and Fall), and in Eugene (Summer).
Board members will serve for a term of two years, beginning officially in June. All new members are required to attend a virtual Board Member Orientation in the month of April. They also have the opportunity to meet with their predecessor before their term begins in April at the Spring Board meeting. New board members will be added to our online team collaboration tools before their term begins to become familiar with important organizational documents and operations.
