Facing Acne very much believes the power of paying it forward, and that includes helping others get a good education. I’ve personally faced challenges in life, both professionally and personally, that I wouldn’t have been able to overcome if it weren’t for my education and college experience. It’s my goal to contribute what I can to help others be prepared for whatever life may throw at them. So I’m very excited to bring you Facing Acne’s second scholarship for the 2020-2021 school year. Applicants who meet the guidelines below may enter for a $1,000 scholarship.
In order to be eligible for this scholarship, applicants should:
To apply for the Facing Acne scholarship, help raise awareness for our homepage article: ‘The Ultimate Guide to Identifying the Best Acne Treatment for Black, Latinx, Asian, and White Skin‘.
Be creative! We will award the scholarship to the candidate who comes up with the best ideas and puts in the biggest effort. Remember to document your work with screenshots, photos, and video(s). Submit your application to [email protected] and remember to include your first and last name, your high school graduation status and the name of the college you plan to attend or are attending. For videos, provide only a YouTube link rather than trying to attach them in email. It won’t work past a certain file size.
IMPORTANT! Please do NOT use any automated online services that create hundreds or even thousands of links to our site from low-quality sites. This will not in any way benefit our site and is cause for immediate disqualification. Work with people one-on-one and focus on quality.
