Core Essentials Scholarship

The APP understands that our industry and its members may be facing financial hardships right now due to the shutdowns required by COVID-19. We believe that all piercers deserve access to comprehensive industry-specific education. As a step towards that access we are offering the Core Essentials Scholarship.

UPDATE: The scholarship is now closed.

All 200 scholarships have been awarded to piercers around the world experiencing financial hardship!

What does the Scholarship cover?

The Scholarship covers the fees of our Online Education: Core Essentials offerings once they hit the on-demand platform.

This will include access to both our pre-recorded Focused Education classes and recordings of each live class. Courses will be available through December 31, 2020.

Participating in live events as they happen will not be offered as a part of this scholarship. Receiving the scholarship will not prevent you from registering and paying for a live class.

Who is eligible for the scholarship?

  • Body Piercers or Apprentice Piercers
  • Currently experiencing financial hardship to the degree that class fees are prohibitive

The APP's Board of Directors is offering 200 scholarships! Scholarships are first come, first served. As of July 7, 2020 all 200 scholarships have been awarded.

Scholarship recipients will be notified as soon as possible via email using the email address provided in their scholarship application.

Recipients will then receive email notifications when they have been registered for each course on our on-demand platform (Litmos). Once notified, the recipient will be able to log in whenever they wish (through December 31, 2020) to take the courses.
