Allman Medical Scholarships
Funded by DR. & MRS. DAVID B. ALLMAN
History of the AwardDr. David B. Allman was a past president of the Miss America Pageant and the American Medical Association. In memory of her husband, Mrs. Allman, during her lifetime, established a scholarship foundation to be administered by the Miss America Organization for the grant of scholarships to Miss America Pageant contestants who wished to enter the field of medicine to become medical doctors. At her death in 1981, Mrs. Allman further funded this foundation so that young women involved in the Pageant system could take advantage of this opportunity to further or commence their education in the medical field. Since 1974, Allman Scholarships have been granted to various Miss America contestants at the National, State and Local level.
