The Linly Heflin Scholarship Committee receives applications in the fall each year from Alabama women seeking help with their undergraduate degree at 4-year accredited Alabama colleges and universities. Our scholarships award $5,000 per year for four years or until graduation, whichever comes first. Specific criteria are used in the selection process and students must maintain a minimum G.P.A. to continue receiving the scholarship. The Scholarship Committee reviews all of the applications following the December deadline and determines which of the applicants will be interviewed in the spring. Following the interviews, the Scholarship Committee makes its selection and the scholarship recipients are notified. Further details concerning the scholarships may be found under Scholarship Policies below.
2018 Linly Heflin Scholarship Applications will be available online beginning August 1, 2017. Please check back after that time to apply. Thank you!
Achieving an education beyond high school is more and more critical. A complex economy and a rapidly changing global market require a skilled, educated workforce — and higher education remains the single best path out of poverty. We invite you to learn how we work with companies, foundations, communities and partners across the world, on behalf of students everywhere.
Scholarship America was founded in 1958, on the revolutionary idea that community support of scholarships could bring college education within reach for millions of students who couldn’t otherwise afford it. Today, we continue those efforts to make postsecondary success a possibility for all students. Scholarship America supports 13,000 scholarship and education assistance programs across the nation and around the world.
NCLD recognizes outstanding high school students with learning and attention issues, general education teachers and schools or school-related programs who support students with learning and attention issues.
Anne Ford and Allegra Ford Thomas ScholarshipsThe 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.

The Coolidge Scholarship is an annually awarded, full-ride, presidential scholarship that covers a student’s tuition, room, board, and expenses for four years of undergraduate study. The Coolidge may be used by recipients at any accredited American college or university. Anyone of any background, pursuing any academic discipline of study, may apply to this non-partisan, need-blind, program.
Students apply for the Coolidge Scholarship during their junior year of high school. Finalists are flown in for a finalist weekend at the Coolidge Historic Site in Plymouth Notch, Vermont where they interview with the Coolidge Scholars Finalist Jury, chaired by Dr. Bruce Cole, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Recipients of the Coolidge Scholarship are notified of their award in late May of their junior year, before college application (note: current high school seniors are not eligible to apply).
Calvin Coolidge worked hard in academics; the young New Englander’s only sport was public speaking, often on public policy. The main criterion that distinguishes Coolidge Scholars therefore is academic excellence. Secondary criteria include: demonstrated interest in public policy; an appreciation for the values Coolidge championed; as well as humility, service, and leadership.
The summer before their senior year of high school, newly selected Coolidge Scholars spend several orientation days at the picturesque birthplace of the President, Plymouth Notch, Vt. There scholars will get to know Coolidge and his world, meet policy leaders, and help the Coolidge Foundation oversee its formidable debate programs. Scholars return to Plymouth Notch for a week in each of the next three summers. During the academic year, scholars participate in the Coolidge Scholars Leadership Training Program.
The Coolidge Scholars Program is operated by the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation. The inaugural class of Coolidge Scholars was named in spring of 2016.
To become “a Coolidge” is a life-changing event.
