The Beauty + Wellness Scholarship for Women

QUARTERLY DEADLINES: January 1st — March 31 — June 30 — September 30

HIGH SCHOOL AWARD: New! $500 + Organic Beauty Basket (2 winners every quarter!)

Each day, the average woman applies more than 200 chemicals to her skin via her beauty routine and over 60% of those chemicals are absorbed directly into the blood stream. These chemicals include potentially cancer-causing chemical additives like parabens, mineral oils and other petrochemical byproducts, ethoxylated ingredients, phthalates, and sulfates (to name a few). Not only are we bombarded by potentially toxic chemicals in our beauty products, we’re also constantly exposed to questionable chemicals in our food, cleaning products, and medicines. Combine those facts with our modern high-stress lifestyles and the CDC’s estimation that 80% of American’s don’t get the recommended amount of exercise—-and you’ve got yourself a big wellness problem. At Skin Care Ox, we believe that true wellness is within our grasp–if we are mindful, aware, and active in making good decisions. We’re not alone. Today, more women are taking a closer look at the ingredients in their food and beauty products and making more informed choices. Additionally, yoga, meditation, and other alternative wellness therapies are more popular now than ever before.

Living a totally healthy lifestyle can be surprisingly challenging in our modern society—especially for college students! The Skin Care Ox: Beauty + Wellness Scholarship for Women program was established to provide financial support to college women who are striving to lead healthy lifestyles. To date, we’ve awarded over $12,000 to deserving health-conscious students from all over the country!
If you’re a female high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is committed to maintaining personal wellness, then this is the scholarship for you!


To be considered eligible to apply for this scholarship, you must meet the requirements below.  The award is intended to help students who are enrolled (or plan to be enrolled) as undergraduate or graduate college students studying in the United States. The scholarship winner will be asked to provide proof of current/future college enrollment. Recent college graduates, high school juniors, and doctoral candidates are not eligible to apply.

  • Must be a graduating high school senior (in final semester) or current college undergraduate or graduate student studying at a 4-year, 2-year, vocational, or technical institution in the United States.

  • Must be a U.S. Citizen or permanent legal resident

  • Must be a woman.
