The Anne Ford Scholarship is open to high school seniors who have a learning disability and want to attend a four-year, accredited college or university in the U.S. The scholarship covers four years of college for students pursuing a Bachelor's degree.

Applicants must have a GPA of 3.0 or above and have documented proof that they have a learning disability. Candidates must also be active in school and community activities, committed to completing a four-year degree program, and be able to demonstrate financial need.

Students selected for scholarships must be willing to assist future Anne Ford Scholars through mentoring and being a role model for other students with learning disabilities. They may be asked to assist through public speaking, writing for publications, and other activities.

The scholarship is offered by The National Center For Learning Disabilities (NCLD), a non-profit organization that provides education, public awareness and grants to support research on learning disabilities. The organization was founded in 1977 and is headquartered in New York City.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in NOVEMBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $10,000.
