The H. T. Ewald Foundation is developing a new vision for the H. T. Ewald Scholarship Program. The transition and change in direction will begin December 31, 2013. At this time the office will be closed, and we will suspend awarding scholarships to students in the near future. We will, however, honor the remaining scholarship funds owed scholarship recipients from 2010, ‘11, ‘12 and ‘13.
At this point in the 85th year of the founding of the H.T. Ewald Foundation, and in keeping with the spirit of our Father and Grandfather, this Ewald generation will pursue charitable work and donating to the projects that we have become involved with in our communities. The Ewald Foundation intends to continue to serve the needs of Detroit and distribute to worthy programs and/or initiatives that we feel are in keeping with our core mission of the foundation as set forth by our grandfather (see Mission Statement).
The Foundation has always been a source of pride for each and every one of Ted Ewald’s children and, when we were able, we contributed our time and energy to the mission of the Ewald Scholarship program. But as we get older and involved in the places where we live, some of us feel a loss of connection with the Detroit area foundation. Much as Ted chose to develop a relationship with each of the students who received scholarships, we feel the desire to have a personal connection to the Ewald Foundation funds that are distributed annually. See about us for the latest on our recent projects.
We are grateful for all the wonderful students you have sent our way and will keep you informed of our development as we carve a new path.

H.T. Ewald Foundation
The H.T. Ewald Foundation believes strongly that education shapes the future of our communities worldwide.
The Foundation hopes that the award winners will in turn, "give back" to their communities and those less fortunate as they pursue their goals and aspirations in the future.
Our Scholarship goal
The aim of the Foundation Scholarship Program is to help remedy this situation and provide the necessary funding so that a college education will become a reality for these young people.
