Eldivia is launching a scholarship program to help support and encourage chemistry students.
Eldivia is doing its part to support the chemists of the future, launching a scholarship program called the “Eldivia Chemistry in Skin Care Success Award Scholarship.” The company hopes that scholarship will support “industry heroes of the future.”— Luxury skincare company
Chemistry plays an integral role in skin care, the company says. To continue innovating and advancing the industry, which is expected to be worth $130 billion by 2019, new and skilled chemists are required.
Earning a degree as a chemist takes time, as the minimum education requirement is a bachelor's degree. Most chemists, particularly those in the beauty industry, have a masters or doctoral degree. Their job is to aid in advancements and innovation in the industry through the development of new formulas that enhance modern skincare routines.
The company’s scholarship aims to ease the high cost of education associated with this career. Most students will spend an average of ten years in college to earn their doctoral degrees.
The goal of the scholarship is to encourage students with an interest in chemistry and beauty to continue their pursuit of a career in the field.
Unlike other scholarship programs, which require written essays, Eldivia is taking a different approach. The company is asking students to submit a 2-minute video that discusses their goals, their interests, and their ideas in chemistry and skincare.
The chosen applicant will receive a $1,000 award for higher education expenses. The award can be put towards the cost of tuition, supplies, books and other higher education expenses.
The video entry must be at least two minutes in length, and the company asks students to answer several questions throughout the course of the video. Applicants are asked to share their thoughts on the key characteristics of a great scientist, their favorite part of becoming a chemist and their thoughts on how chemistry advancements improve skin care. They will also be asked to share what inspires them and why.
“While we are looking at the entries, we will be looking for creativity, clarity and the overall quality of the statements put forward,” the company said in a statement. Applicants are asked to take a creative approach to their entry video and to be honest with their answers.
The scholarship is only available to students currently enrolled in a college or university.
To participate, students must upload their video to YouTube, include “Eldivia Chemistry in Skin Care Success Award Scholarship” in the title, and post a link back to the scholarship page in the video description. The final step is to email Eldivia with a link to the video as well as other information that the company outlines on its scholarship page.
Applicants must demonstrate proof that they have been accepted or are currently enrolled in a specified college or university, and they must also state the area in which they are studying.
All entries must be received by December 31, 2018, and winners will be chosen in January 2019. By entering, applicants give Eldivia permission to use their videos for promotional or marketing purposes.
Eldivia was co-founded by Valentina Chistova, who began her career as an aesthetician. She launched Eldivia after discovering a demand for luxurious skin care that was both accessible to and affordable for the everyday person.
Chistova is internationally trained and certified as both an aesthetician and a registered nurse. Her celebrity client list includes Ivana Trump, Stacey Carter, Galit Chait, and more.
The company focuses on providing luxury skincare that is free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, artificial dyes and formaldehyde releasers.
