Haircare brand Creme of Nature is doing its part to help Black aspiring beauty professionals matriculating from HBCUs across the country.
According to an announcement, the beauty giant — in partnership with United Negro College Fund — has announced the launch of a new $100,000 scholarship program designed specifically for HBCU students.
In partnership with UNCF, Creme of Nature launches its multi-tiered “Legacy to Leadership” Scholarship Fund for #HBCU students. Beginning this year, students currently enrolled at an HBCU will compete for $100,000 in scholarships.

The multi-tiered program titled “The Legacy to Leadership” Scholarship Fund, will be administered through UNCF to both fund our future generation’s education and honor Creme of Nature’s legacy for making products with Black communities in mind.
Jolorie Williams — FAMU alumna and general manager of Revlon Multicultural and Contract Services — issued a formal statement on Creme of Nature’s latest noble initiative.
“The prominence of HBCU alumni and their impact on the world cannot be overstated. This dynamic network has instilled confidence and created a space for dreams to be obtained for Black students for more than 100 years. Creme of Nature shares these values intimately. We understand the creativity, power, and change that happens when an investment is made in the Black community and we are excited to continue sowing into this community with our initial program offering financial educational support and prizes to support the next generation of world changers.”
Eligible applicants for the program can apply now until March 17, 2021. Creme of Nature will then select 25 students to be awarded $5,000 each for their school tuition.
