Ortho Dermatologics Accepting Applications for its Aspire Higher Scholarship Program

Ortho Dermatologics is now accepting applications for its 2019 Aspire Higher scholarship program, which will award $90,000 total to nine students who have been treated for a dermatologic condition.

To apply for the scholarship, students are required to share an essay about their experience of living with a dermatologic condition, as well as the role that a dermatologist, physician assistant or nurse practitioner played in helping treat them.

Scholarships are open to applicants or current attendees of a two- or four-year college, university or advanced (post-high school) vocational or technical school, and are available in three categories:

  • Undergraduate Scholar Awards for students pursuing undergraduate degrees
  • Graduate Scholar Awards for students pursuing graduate degrees
  • Today's Woman Scholar Awards for students who are mothers pursuing either undergraduate or graduate degrees

“At Ortho Dermatologics, our passion for dermatology is fueled by our understanding of the tremendous impact the profession can have on patients’ lives,” said Bill Humphries, president, Ortho Dermatologics. “Every year, we are inspired by the stories we hear from Aspire Higher applicants who have experienced the challenges of living with a skin condition, and about how their dermatologists have played a significant role in helping them navigate their condition. We are proud to support these amazing students and help them continue their education through the Aspire Higher scholarship program.”

Students can apply through April 26, 2019, and winners will be announced on July 10, 2019. To learn more about eligibility criteria, terms and conditions—and to see stories from previous winners, please visit www.AspireHigherScholarships.com.
