In 2011, Folsom Cordova USD’s Governing Board Member Zak Ford, Daniel Campbell Ford's great-grandson, established the Daniel Campbell Ford Scholarship in his honor.

The Daniel Campbell Ford Scholarship is awarded annually to two Folsom Cordova USD graduating seniors planning to continue their education at a two-year or four-year college or university. One student is awarded the scholarship from the Rancho Cordova community and one student is awarded the scholarship from the Folsom community. The award amount per student is $1,000.
