CJ Pony Parts is proud to offer two scholarships per year, each worth $500, to students enrolling in post-secondary education in their next semester.

Who’s eligible?

Any U.S. resident who will be enrolling in post-secondary education in the next semester is eligible for this scholarship. This is open to all fields of study and is not exclusive to automotive or related degrees. See Rules and Regulations for more.

How to Apply

Create a short video (under 3 minutes long) on one of these topics. Videos over 3 minutes or on multiple topics will be disqualified:

  • What is one memory you have of a Mustang that left an impression?
  • How do Mustangs relate to your current or intended field of study? (Get creative!)
  • If you could redesign one Mustang generation, what would you change and why?
  • Mustangs have made a lot of progress over the years. What is one automotive advancement you're looking forward to and why?
  • Lee Iacocca, Gale Halderman, and many others contributed to the birth of the Mustang, creating a lasting legacy. What do you hope your legacy will be?

You can be inspirational, funny, serious, educational, or even musical! Winners will be selected based on creativity and content rather than video editing skill or how many views the video gets. Submitted videos must be your own work.

Upload your video to YouTube and email the link to scholarships@cjponyparts.com before midnight EST on the appropriate deadline below.
