The Anne Ford and Allegra Ford Thomas Scholarships offer financial assistance to two graduating high school seniors with documented learning disabilities and/or ADHD who are pursuing post-secondary education. The Anne Ford Scholarship was first awarded in 2002. In 2009, with a generous donation from Anne’s daughter, Allegra, a second scholarship was created and named the Allegra Ford Thomas Scholarship.
