Atlanta, USA — The American Cancer Society is currently inviting Colleges and Universities, Schools of Medicine or Nursing, and other institutions of higher learning to submit an Application to develop academic training programs on tobacco control within their institutions. The overall goal of the Request for Applications is to establish a rigorous, formal course of study, preferably at the graduate level, which will prepare students in low and middle-income countries for tobacco control work in civil society, government, research institutions, or the private sector upon graduation. In so doing, this Request for Applications aims to move tobacco control training and research to a higher priority in educational settings of higher learning, by supporting the development of formal educational programs (degree, certificate, certification, continuing medical education credit, etc.) in public health or other academic disciplines that are relevant to tobacco control.
Applications will be accepted from institutions in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
