Dermadry has launched its first annual scholarship contest! We will award one student with hyperhidrosis a $1000 USD scholarship, and a Dermadry Total (valued at $349 USD). Back-to-school season is upon us and we are taking the opportunity to make a positive change in one lucky (sweaty) student’s life! The launch of this scholarship furthers our mission to raise awareness about the medical condition and de-stigmatize the topic of sweating.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating, that affects approximately 5% of the global population. It can have a significant impact on an individual’s social life, mental health, and general well-being and quality of life.
Students with hyperhidrosis are faced with a unique set of challenges, which can interfere with their ability to complete school-related activities and social functions. From shying away from social activities and meeting new people, to ruining books, papers, and technology tools due to uncontrollably sweaty hands, the challenges are constant. The effects of hyperhidrosis can also lead to an increase in stress and anxiety levels, and lead to isolation and bullying. We want to change the conversation about sweating, and the best way to do so is by talking about it, so we are asking students from around the globe to come forward and share their story!
Students aged 18+ from around the globe currently enrolled in a program for the upcoming Fall 2019 semester.
Student will also receive a Dermadry Total device (valued at $349 USD) to treat the medical condition known as hyperhidrosis.
Students should record a video of themselves (minimum 60 seconds) talking about their hyperhidrosis story. They can then send the completed video via WeTransfer to email@example.com OR upload it to YouTube (or similar video-hosting platform) and include the link in the application. In both cases, the application form on our website must be filled and submitted.
