Each spring, Hoxworth Blood Center awards the Malcolm Adcock Scholarship to a local minority student who excels in the following categories: academics, community service and school related activities.

Malcolm Adcock was Cincinnati health commissioner for 11 years. He was known for his dedication to improving health care services for the low-income residents of Cincinnati. His proudest achievement was keeping medical services intact at the city’s six health clinics, located in low-income communities, despite Cincinnati’s budget crisis. He served on the Community Advisory Board of Hoxworth Blood Center for more than 15 years and was Board Chair from 1999 to 2003.

This scholarship may be for you if you...

  • Are a minority senior in high school
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.5
  • Are active in your school and community
