The Truth Initiative (formerly the Legacy Foundation ) is offering college and graduate students a chance to earn one of two $5,000 scholarships for demonstrating their commitment to community service and the use of creative arts to reduce tobacco use in priority populations.
The “Dr. Alma S. Adams Scholarship for Outreach and Health Communications to Reduce Tobacco Use Among Priority Populations” is named for Dr. Alma S. Adams, a gifted artist, public servant, and founding board member of Truth Initiative who is currently serving as a member of Congress representing North Carolina’s 12th Congressional District. Two scholarships will be awarded to support students pursuing undergraduate or graduate study at an accredited institution of higher learning in the U.S.
If you know of a worthy student who’s been using their creativity to inspire others to be tobacco-free, please share this application with them. Applications will be accepted until April 30, 2016. Awardees will be notified June 30, 2016.
