“On behalf of P&G, we send a huge congratulations to the recipients of the Rooted in Science Scholarship,” said Dr.
As two brands that are #RootedinScience, Royal Oils and Gold Series launched the scholarship last fall to support the growth and development of future Black female STEM-focused innovators. Gold Series from Pantene was formulated by Black scientists, Ph.Ds., dermatologists, and stylists who understand the unique needs of textured hair and provides superior moisturization. Through decades of cutting-edge innovation and technology, plus on-going research of textured hair, Royal Oils by Head & Shoulders was also developed to deliver superior scalp care and moisturization for any style.
“UNCF is excited to continue our long-standing relationship with P&G, and the Rooted in Science Scholarship is a next step on a STEM path that enables more Black women to make a difference in lives of others—both within their communities and across our nation and around the world. That’s particularly important right now given the current health crisis,” said Dr.
