Commencing March 4th, 2024, the QV Healthcare Practitioner Student Scholarship aims to further the education of undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in Pharmacy, Medicine, or Nursing programs. With a total prize pool of $30,000, this initiative endeavours to advance the academic pursuits of aspiring healthcare professionals in Australia.

Participants are requested to submit a concise essay focusing on sensitive skin, a subject that QV has explored over several decades through its specialisation in skincare solutions for sensitive and problematic skin types. Submissions will be judged by a panel of industry experts including Fabrizio Spada (Scientific Affairs Manager, Ego Pharmaceuticals), Vivienne Speirs (President, Australian Dermatology Nurses' Association) and Michelle Privitera (President, Eczema Association of Australasia).

QV Skincare, part of the Ego Pharmaceuticals portfolio, has a long and close association with healthcare practitioners since the brand was first founded following a request from the dermatology ward of Melbourne’s iconic Queen Victoria Hospital.

Decades on, the QV brand remains family owned, Australian made, and synonymous with quality and innovation. With over 50 QV products sold in more than 20 nations around the world, QV is proud to be the #1 recommended sensitive skincare brand by healthcare practitioners^, a testament to the trust dermatologists, GPs and pharmacists have in the brand.

The QV Healthcare Practitioner Student Scholarship is open from March 4th until June 27th 2023. Interested parties can enter here.
