QV HCP Student Scholarshipn

Our next generation’s most promising healthcare practitioners have been recognised with QV Skincare today announcing the winners of the annual QV Healthcare Practitioner Student Scholarship. 

Yaron Gu (University of NSW), Claudia Tran (University of Sydney) and Kristin Myall (Australian College of Nursing) have each been awarded $10,000 in prize money following a nationwide campaign that saw entries from medicine, pharmacy and nursing students.

"We received a range of impressive and considered scholarship entries this year, however Yaron’s, Claudia’s and Kristin’s entries were true standouts", said QV Senior Regional Brand Manager, Kira Torpy.

Launched in 2022, the QV Healthcare Practitioner Student Scholarship aims to help further the education of the next generation of healthcare leaders.

QV Skincare, part of the Ego Pharmaceuticals portfolio, has a long and close association with helping people with sensitive skin since the business was first founded following a request from the dermatology ward of Melbourne’s iconic Queen Victoria Hospital.

Decades on, the QV brand remains family owned, Australian made, and synonymous with quality and innovation. With over 50 QV products sold in more than 20 nations around the world, QV is proud to be the #1 recommended sensitive skincare brand by healthcare practitioners[1], a testament to the trust dermatologists, GPs and pharmacists have in the brand.
