Xavier University of Louisiana Partners with Curology to Launch Scholarship Program in Honor of Black History Month
Curology campaign to support Black joy, including a scholarship program with Xavier University of Louisiana and an expansion of their Curology Access Program, beginning February 1, 2021.
NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Xavier University of Louisiana has been awarded $50,000 in scholarship funds from Curology, the leader in customized subscription skincare, to support aspiring dermatologists. The funding is a part of the “In Support of Black Joy” campaign launched by Curology to celebrate Black History Month. The campaign, which includes a public commitment, will highlight Black creators sharing stories of finding and creating joy.
“Xavier is grateful to be the recipient of scholarship funds from Curology that will go to aspiring dermatologists on our campus,” said Reynold Verret, President of Xavier University of Louisiana. “Investing in HBCU students is an investment that promotes diversity and equity in the United States, which is vital in the continued effort to close the medical inequality gap and support the next generation.”
“Black joy is resilience. It’s an act of resistance and a catalyst for change,” says Nicole Cech, Senior Manager of Integrated Marketing Communications at Curology. “Curology helps take care of your outside, but we wanted to explore something that starts beneath the surface and radiates outward. We believe that diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging make all of us better and stronger, and the In Support of Black Joy campaign is an example of Curology’s commitment to all underrepresented groups, and to inspiring the next generation of change.”
Curology’s In Support of Black Joy experience will spotlight, celebrate, and speak to Black Joy through digital events, essays, and video diaries throughout the month of February at InSupportofBlackJoy.Curology.com.
Additionally, Curology is proud to announce the expansion of their Curology Access Program (CAP), making effective skincare more accessible. Through this program, Curology will be providing free, two-year subscriptions to 1,000 new, qualifying applicants per month with $485 of credit for Curology medication and services, for a brand-wide commitment of $485,000 per month and $5.8MM annually.
