Dr. David B. Allman was a past president of the Miss America Organization and the American Medical Association. In memory of her husband, Mrs. Allman established a scholarship foundation to be administered by The Miss America Foundation for the grant of scholarships to Miss America candidates 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 program 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 candidates at the National, State and Local level. From time to time, The Miss America Foundation has also contributed funds to increase the scholarships available.
