The 2016 DermMedica $1,000 Scholarship; Due January 1st 2016

September 29, 2015 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

The 2016 DermMedica Scholarship

The first scholarship we launched in 2015 was a great success, and we’re happy to announce that we’re following up with another one for upcoming spring semester. It was a real pleasure to read all of the great essays that we received last year, but this year, we wanted to do something to call attention to an important cause.


Melanoma is a serious skin form of cancer condition threatening millions every year. What makes this cancer in particular so tragic is that it is much more effectively treated when detected early, and so easy to detect. Even a short introduction to melanoma could help someone save a life.

We’re asking you to help us make more people aware of melanoma and its detection, risks and treatments. For our scholarship, we’re asking you to create an infographic based around one of the melanoma topics we’ve presented.

Infographics are a popular and useful way to showcase important information in an easy-to-digest way. It is our hope that attention-grabbing entries will be able to help real people become more aware of melanoma, its symptoms and its treatments. All of the best entries will be showcased under your name on our twitter account where people can see them and use them.

Scholarship Contest & Rules

To enter, you’ll need to create an infographic based around one of our two topics. The winner of our scholarship will receive a $1000 award toward their education.


Your infographic should be no larger than 800 x 1100 pixels. If you have never built an infographic before or lack a drawing program, you can use a program like: https://www.canva.com/create/infographics/


1) The Facts about Melanoma

Help people understand the facts about melanoma by showcasing published data in a friendly way. Your infographic can focus on any of these subjects, or you can choose your own subject in the same vein:

  • Risk Factors for Melanoma
  • Trends in Annual Melanoma Cases
  • New Treatment Options for Melanoma

Whatever subject you choose, try to keep it narrow and well-supported by facts.

2) Helpful Organizations

Advocate for a melanoma research or treatment organization. Use their published statistics to showcase what they’re accomplishing, and why they should be considered for charitable donations. You can choose organizations that focus on any part of melanoma research or assistance, from clinic groups to groups that focus on awareness.

Please remember that the best entries will be featured on our Facebook and Twitter social media accounts, and will need to comply with the content rules for those platforms. We ask that entries not include any photos of a medical nature, though you can certainly use your infographic to direct people toward those resources.


You can submit your scholarship on our website. All entries must be submitted no later than Jan 1. 2016. Please see our complete terms and conditions if you have any questions about the rules.

2015 Bi-Annual College Scholarship Essay Contest

The 2015 essay contest

In order to participate, applicants must be currently enrolled or planning to enroll in an accredited United States college or university in the near future and should write a 500-word essay responding to the following question:

The workers’ compensation program exists to ensure that people who develop work-related illnesses or are injured on the job receive compensation. It is a no-fault system, meaning that workers generally receive benefits regardless of who caused the accident. In return for this security, workers are generally barred from suing their employers for negligence resulting in illness or injury. There are some exceptions to this rule, however, and there are some circumstances in which an employee may sue his or her employer. In your personal opinion, what circumstances would warrant such a lawsuit, and why?

Responses will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:

  • The quality of the writing
  • Originality
  • The thoughtfulness of the response
  • The applicant’s demonstrated potential for success in their chosen field of study
  • Once the application period is closed, the submissions will be reviewed by the firm and a winner will be chosen based on the criteria listed above. The winner will be notified by email on or around 12/15/2015.

Applicants should submit their responses as an attachment to zzlscholarship@gmail.com by 12/01/2015. In the body of their email, applicants should include:

  • Their full name, address, and phone number
  • The name of the educational institution they are attending or plan to attend
  • Their current or proposed course of study
  • Contact information for their parent or guardian, if the applicant is under 18-years-old.
