Ortho Dermatologics is accepting applications for the 2018 Aspire Higher scholarship program for students who have been affected by dermatologic conditions.
Through the program, nine students will receive a scholarship of $10,000. The submission period for applications is open through April 28, 2018, and honorees will be announced on July 13, 2018.
An Aspire Higher scholarship is available for applicants or current attendees of a two- or four-year college, university or advanced (post-high school) vocational or technical school who have been treated for a dermatologic condition. Scholarships will be awarded to a range of students, with three scholarships available in each of the following categories:
- Undergraduate Scholar Awards for those pursuing undergraduate degrees
- Graduate Scholar Awards for those pursuing graduate degrees
- Today’s Woman Scholar Awards for mothers pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees
To apply, students must submit an essay describing the impact that a dermatologic condition has had on their life, as well as the role that a dermatologist, physician assistant or nurse practitioner played in helping treat the condition. An independent panel of dermatologists will review the applications and select nine winners.
