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!
We are asking applicants to record themselves talking about their experience with hyperhidrosis, and the challenges they face on the daily, with a focus on school-related struggles. For more information and to apply, visit our scholarship page on our website!
