The Ann Forman Scholarship

The Travis County Women Lawyers Scholarship Fund created the Ann Forman Scholarship in 2011 to honor the contributions of attorney Ann Dinsmore Forman to the Austin legal community and to the children of Texas. The scholarship, under the auspices of the Travis County Women Lawyers Scholarship Fund, Inc., is in the amount of $2,000.00.

Ann Forman died on January 28, 2010 after a long and brave battle against breast cancer. She was an Assistant District Attorney with the Travis County District Attorney’s office for many years, handling child welfare cases. Throughout her career, Ann was known for her intelligence, compassion, commitment to justice, and integrity in advocating for children. She mentored many attorneys in child welfare law and set an example for all those who worked with her. Through her work and her mentoring, Ann improved the lives of children and their families, and the community.

The recipient of the scholarship will be announced at TCWLA’s Combined Mentoring Program and Membership Lunch in the Spring of 2021.
