Celebrating the Global Scholarship Programme Class of 2019
As part of our ongoing commitment to lifelong learning, the Avon Foundation for Women awards academic scholarships to our beauty entrepreneurs and their families.
2019 marks a particularly special year for the global scholarship programme because the Avon Foundation doubled its investment in educational grants to nearly $400,000.
This meant that in 2019, nearly 200 Representatives in over 20 countries were able to successfully apply for scholarship grants for themselves, or their children or grandchildren.
Congratulations to the Global Scholarship programme Class of 2019, we wish you tremendous success with your studies!
