The Miss America Foundation Announces New Dr. & Mrs. Davuluri Family Medical Scholarship

Atlantic City, NJ (July 25, 2017) – The Miss America Foundation proudly offers academic and community-based scholarships for current and former contestants to pursue their education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applications are received annually and recipients are selected from a national pool based on a variety of criteria. The Miss America Foundation is honored to announce its newest scholarship award, The Dr. & Mrs. Davuluri Family Medical Scholarship.

Dr. Chaudhury Davuluri, lovingly known as “Dr. D,” was a dedicated physician serving several communities across America as an Obstetrician and Gynecologist. As a father of two young women — one being a former Miss America and the other a Urologist — Dr. D absolutely loved children, caring for others, and being a mentor. In memory their loving husband and father, the Davuluri Family established a scholarship fund through The Miss America Foundation to help young women pursue their dreams of becoming a physician and serving others.

“Our family was in agreement that it was an organic & meaningful fit to establish a scholarship through the Miss America Foundation,” said Nina Davuluri, Miss America 2014. “As it encompasses our father’s life and legacy: service and love for others. Both of which are the fundamental foundations of Miss America and Physicians alike.”

Guidelines for The Dr. & Mrs. Davuluri Family Medical Scholarship:

The Dr. & Mrs. Davuluri Family Medical Scholarship will be granted if there are qualified candidates in the Miss America Organization who meet the requirements for grant of scholarship. This scholarship is available to women who have competed within the Miss America system on the Local, State, or National levels from 2007 to present, regardless of whether a title was won. The MAF scholarship committee will review all applications, and the family will award one or more scholarships per year (up to a combined total of $5,000 per year) depending upon the qualifications of the candidates.

A new application must be submitted each year and previous recipients are also eligible to apply.

Applicants will be considered for the award based upon a number of factors including, but not limited to, GPA (high school and college/university), class rank, MCAT score, extra-curricular activities, and level of participation within the system. Applicants must also address the following question:

Becoming a physician isn’t solely about your transcripts and MCAT scores. What is something you’ve experienced outside of the classroom that has influenced your decision to become a physician? And through this experience, what have you learned about yourself?

Applications must be received by August 7, 2017, to be considered.

We

encourage all eligible contestants to apply for this generous award as they continue their scholastic endeavors in the medical field! To apply, please click the link below.

“We are thrilled to have Sage Steele return for her second year as co-host of the Miss America Competition,” said Josh Randle, President of the Miss America Organization. “Sage brings her energy and flair to the telecast, and she embodies the style and success synonymous with Miss America.”

Chris Harrison began his television career by covering local sports in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Dallas, Texas, native went to Oklahoma City University on a soccer scholarship, and then made the natural transition to sportscasting with a local station. During his six years there, he worked his way up the ranks from part-time sportscaster to weekend sportscaster. He also had the opportunity to cover hard-news stories. After moving to Los Angeles in 1999 and landing a job as host of HGTV’s “Designer’s Challenge,” he went on to host ABC’s hit romance/reality series “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” He has also hosted ABC’s popular reality shows “Bachelor Pad,” “Bachelor in Paradise,” and “After Paradise.” In 2015, Harrison was named the new host of the nationally syndicated game show “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.” Since 2011, Harrison has co-hosted ABC’s live coverage of “The Miss America Competition.” He first hosted the iconic broadcast on ABC in 2004.

The versatile Harrison has done his fair share of acting as well, with roles in the popular television series “Alias,” “The Practice,” “Six Feet Under” and “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” His feature-film appearances include “Bounce,” “Showtime” and portraying himself in the comedy “Date Movie.” In his spare time, Harrison still plays soccer and has become addicted to golf. He has developed a great appreciation for the weather and lifestyle of Southern California, and spends as much time as possible outdoors with 15-year-old son Joshua and 13-year-old daughter Taylor.

Sage Steele is one of ESPN’s most popular and respected commentators, currently serving as the lead host for SportsCenter on the Road and as the Monday-Thursday anchor for SportsCenter:AM, the 7-10 a.m. ET edition of ESPN’s news and information program, from ESPN’s studios in Bristol, Ct. Steele’s lead role for SportsCenter on the Road  includes on-site, day-long and pre-event coverage for the biggest sports events of the year, including the Super Bowl, World Series, the Masters, the College Football National Championship and many more. Steele was named SportsCenter on the Road host in September of 2016. Previously, she hosted NBA Countdown on ESPN and ABC from 2013 through the 2016-17 NBA season. Steele, who joined ESPN in 2007, served as a regular anchor of SportsCenter until 2013. She also hosted the Scripps National Spelling Bee from 2010-2013. In addition to SportsCenter, she also has contributed to First Take and Mike & Mike, and has been a guest co-host of ESPN2’s SportsNation. Steele also hosted ABC and ESPN’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve during the inaugural College Football Playoff. Beyond her work for ESPN, Steele has co-hosted ABC’s telecast of the Miss America pageant since 2016 and has been a featured guest host on ABC’s The View. In 2015, Steele added ‘mommy blogger’ to her job portfolio, contributing several stories to Disney-owned Babble. She has also been a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live and has been profiled by Rolling Stone, Wall Street Journal, Vibe and Huffington Post, to name a few. Steele began her television career at WSBT-TV in South Bend, Ind., as a producer and reporter (1995-1997). She then moved to WISH-TV in Indianapolis where she was the beat reporter for the Indianapolis Colts, in addition to covering the 1997 NCAA Men’s Final Four, NASCAR and the IndyCar Series. In August 1998, Steele moved to Tampa and worked as a reporter, anchor, and host for WFTS-TV. She was the beat reporter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1998-2001 and covered the 1999 NCAA Men’s Final Four.
