This program will award $150,000  to ten U.S. Hispanic (USH), in addition to non-USH, full-time medical students and residents focused on a career in dermatology and interested in serving the Hispanic community.

Lubriderm is partnering with the National Hispanic Health Foundation (NHHF) to create the Skin Scholarship sponsored by Lubriderm.

This dedicated scholarship program will award $150,000 to ten U.S. Hispanic (USH), in addition to non-USH, full-time medical students and residents focused on a career in dermatology and interested in serving the Hispanic community. The goal of the scholarship program is to increase USH representation and accessibility within the field.

Recent research has shown only 5 percent of U.S. dermatologists identify as Hispanic. In addition, a recent survey conducted by Lubriderm discovered that more than a quarter of USH consumers have never visited a dermatologist. Based on these research and findings, Lubriderm aims to close the racial representation gap amongst providers and patients and ensure that those within underrepresented communities have the financial support to both pursue a medical career and have access to a dermatologist.
