Get excited, nursing students, because CeraVe wants to support your education — again! For the third year in a row, the #1 dermatologist-recommended skincare brand is honoring future nurses with the CeraVe Future Nurses Scholarship by granting a total of $75,000 to 15 future nurses to help them reach all of their career goals and nursing dreams.

In addition to $5,000, each winner will also receive a huge package of the *best* CeraVe products — all of which are developed with dermatologists — to add to their skincare routine and help them unwind after a long day of school!

Because there are so many incredible people in this next generation of healthcare workers, you’re probably wondering how to make your CeraVe Future Nurses Scholarship application stand out from the rest — right? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered.

Check out some of our best recs on what to add alongside your 250-word essay when you’re getting ready to send in your app:

Submit a video.

Not only will this get you some extra credit on your application, but it’s also a great way to show off your personality! Whether you want to explain why being a nurse is your calling or have an inspiring story to share, attaching a video will definitely help draw attention to your application. Shoot it in selfie mode while you’re going to class, or make it a fun production by grabbing your camera and a tripod. Whatever you decide to do, we can’t wait to see it!

Be vulnerable.

We get it: being vulnerable is hard. But there’s nothing more beautiful than when someone is fully themselves. Plus, if you’re honest and raw in your application — whether in your essay or your video — we can get to know the real you, become familiar with your story, and strongly agree that you should be one of the scholarship winners.

Show off your passion for nursing.

Did a nurse treat you with kindness when you were a child, and you want to do that for other children in the pediatric wing? Or maybe you volunteered at a hospital every weekend during your freshman year of college and fell in love with helping people. Whatever it is that makes you passionate about nursing, we want to know. Feel free to brag about yourself, share your accomplishments, and show off why you’re destined to be a nurse.

Scholarship winners will be publicly announced on May 6, just in time for National Nurses Day — but don’t wait to submit your application! Apply for the scholarship right now because submissions close on March 31, 2024!

Here’s to all the dedicated nursing students! You truly deserve to win this life-changing scholarship. Good luck!
