Today, Zipcar and Ford Motor Company announced that their "Students with Drive" grant program surpassed a significant milestone of $1 million donated to student organizations over the past six years.

The “Students with Drive” program seeks to further the efforts of student organizations making positive impacts on campuses and communities. The grants consist of access to Zipcar vehicles at no cost, cash for specific organizational needs and scholarship money donated to the school.

This year’s winner, Brown University’s Outing Club, enables students to get off campus and explore the outdoors. With the grant money from Ford and Zipcar, the Outing Club will be able to provide even more students with outdoor experiences. The Outing Club will receive $5,000 in Zipcar credits to be used for memberships and driving, $10,000 to put toward their cause and $10,000 to be awarded to Brown University.
