Mercedes-Benz USA has launched a national scholarship program to provide educational assistance to students who will be the first in their families to attend college. The program, Drive Your Future: The Mercedes-Benz USA Scholarship Program, will make $500,000 in funding available to students through support from MBUSA and the fundraising activities of its dealers.

Graduating high school seniors who will be the first in their families to attend college or vocational school are invited to apply for one-time, $2,000 scholarships. Three students in each state will receive scholarships in addition to students from various youth organizations. More than 250 scholarships will be awarded in 2004.

Scholarship applicants will be evaluated based on academic achievement (a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher), financial need, demonstrated leadership, and participation in school and community activities. Honors, work experience, goals and aspirations, and unusual personal or family circumstances will also be considered.

Detailed program information and application forms are available via the Mercedes-Benz USA website at http://www.mbusa.com/drivefuture/. The deadline for the Mercedes-Benz USA Scholarship Deadline is Friday, June 11, 2004.
