L'Oréal Australia presents the 2021 Beauty for All scholarship awards, which provides young, passionate, and aspiring beauty professionals with valuable education opportunities and a career pathway into the beauty industry.
This year’s recipients have faced cultural and financial hardships and we are proud to award such deserving students with the tools to support them accomplish their dreams. It is the entrepreneurial spirit and motivation of these individuals which makes them stand out from the crowd, and is the kind of talent L'Oréal Australia seeks to foster.
We are proud to support four deserving students with generous scholarships, equating to a total of $50,000, to cover the recipients’ full tuition expenses at Kangan Institute, one of the largest and most trusted education and training providers in Victoria.
“Seeing how passionate and skilled our Beauty for All Scholars already are, is a highlight of this program each year. And being able to contribute to helping them achieve their goals is at the heart of our work at L'Oréal Australia. We are committed to supporting the communities we are a part of and we are incredibly proud of these outstanding young people. We can’t wait to see them progress in their careers,” says Marnie Carroll, Corporate Affairs & Engagement Director, L'Oréal Australia.
The 2021 Beauty for All scholars were recognised at a virtual awards ceremony on the 6th of October, hosted by Author, Entrepreneur, and Seize the Yay podcast presenter, Sarah Davidson. Attendees were treated to a makeup masterclass by Lancôme’s Director of Artistry, Lara Srokowski as well a live cocktail making demonstration from The Eveleigh, a renowned bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne.
