About the

Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates Scholarship

With our shared passion for education and commitment to excellence, we’ve established the Dr. Nerina Wilkinson + Associates Scholarship in partnership with the Isa Carstens Academy to help provide the resources required for passionate and deserving skin care professionals to continue on their path to greatness.

As a leader in academic quality and innovation in the Health and Skincare Industry, the Isa Carstens Academy is recognised as a top training institution devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and developing students. But, as we all know, life waits for no one and often interrupts our students’ plans for their bright futures. So, we’ve decided to combine forces to help make a difference.

Without world-class skincare specialists, your aesthetic couture journey will not be what it is today!
