The General Motors Foundation recently announced that they will be offering the College for Creative Studies (CCS) in Detriot, which teaches the most automotive designers, a $2.5 million grant.

The president of GM Mark Reuss explained that this program was being awarded with this grant because it produces some of the best automotive designers. The money will then be put into place to promote the continuation of the college's A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education.

"The quality of young designers that CCS educates and trains is a tremendous resource for Detroit and the world," said Reuss. "Working to strengthen CCS is critical in our attempts to help Detroit rebound economically and for us to win in the marketplace."

The GM Foundation has been giving money to charities and educational programs around the globe since 1976.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more than 300 design schools and programs in the U.S. that are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
