SPOKANE, Wash., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ambassadors Scholarship Foundation, the foundation sponsored by People to People Ambassador Programs, is now accepting applications for its annual Rafer Johnson Scholarship. The scholarship covers the full cost of a People to People student trip for a student who is currently enrolled in a People to People program and has demonstrated courage while overcoming a significant physical disability or illness.

"The Rafer Johnson Scholarship honors the spirit of Rafer Johnson by offering a scholarship to a student who has overcome significant physical adversity," said Ryan Oelrich, director of the Ambassadors Scholarship Foundation.
