The American Legacy Foundation is accepting applications for the Dr. Alma S. Adams Scholarship for Outreach and Health Communications to reduce tobacco use among the foundation’s “Priority Populations.” Priority populations are those populations who are disproportionately targeted by the tobacco industry, or who 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.
Applications will be accepted from January 1, 2011 until April 30, 2011. Awardees will be notified by June 30, 2011.
One more week left to apply to be a 2011 Youth Advocate of the Year, sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. Winners will be recognized at their annual gala on May 18, 2011 in Washington, DC. Read more
