The Dermadry Scholarship For Students With Hyperhidrosis
Dermadry is back with their fourth annual edition of the Dermadry Hyperhidrosis Scholarship. The contest is open to students from around the globe who suffer from hyperhidrosis, a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating that affects approximately 1 in 20 people worldwide.
Students with hyperhidrosis are faced with a unique set of challenges, which can have a significant impact on quality of life, and interfere with their ability to complete daily and student-related tasks. Some of these challenges include constantly sweating through school uniforms, shying away from social activities, and struggling to write on both paper and laptops because of sweaty hands. It can also lead to an increase in stress and anxiety levels, and lead to isolation, and bullying. We want to end the stigma around sweating, and get more people talking about hyperhidrosis!
This is why we want you to share your story with us! Help us raise awareness of hyperhidrosis and destigmatize excessive sweating! We’re encouraging students to come forward and share their hyperhidrosis story by creating a video that explores the impact hyperhidrosis has on their studies and daily life.
The Dermadry Hyperhidrosis Scholarship
Launched in 2019, Dermadry’s Hyperhidrosis Scholarship is the first and only of its kind, that is a scholarship exclusively for students with hyperhidrosis.
Every year, Dermadry encourages students to come forward and share their hyperhidrosis story by creating a video that explores the impact hyperhidrosis has on their studies and daily life. The scholarship is granted to one student every year to help with the extra costs incurred from being a student who suffers from excessive sweating.
