With students facing huge rises in university fees, any financial assistance is to be welcomed so Ford's decision to launch a scholarship scheme to mark its UK centenary is one step in the right direction.

As part of the company's 100 year celebrations, Ford has created the Ford Blue Oval Scholarship Programme, providing £1m to 100 university students in an effort to foster a new generation of engineers, scientists and innovators.
