American Legacy Foundation Accepting Applications
for Dr. Alma S. Adams Scholarship

Deadline: April 15, 2008

The American Legacy Foundation ( ) is now accepting applications for the Dr. Alma S. Adams Scholar- ship for Outreach and Health Communications to reduce tobacco use among what the foundation calls "Priority Populations." Priority populations are those populations which are disproportionately targeted by the tobacco industry, or which often lack the tools and resources to combat smoking in their communities. Identified priority populations are Native Americans/Alaska Natives, Hispanics, African Americans, Asian/Pacific Islanders, Low SES, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender communities.

The Adams scholarship will award a total of $10,000 annually for up to two candidates to pursue undergraduate or graduate studies at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States. The scholarship will be awarded to individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to community service or used the visual arts or media to convey culturally appropriate health messages on behalf of a disadvantaged population.

The informational brochure and application are available at the Legacy Web site.
