Grant Information

The PCOS Diva/PCOS Challenge Confidence Grant was created to help women and girls struggling with hair and skin issues related to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. The grants are awarded in amounts up to $500 per individual to assist with the costs associated with dermatology treatments, laser hair removal or electrolysis. Payments are made directly to the provider performing the treatments.
The only restrictions for applying are:
  • Applicant MUST have a diagnosis of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome from a physician.
  • Applicant MUST be a legal permanent US resident.
  • Applicant MUST be at least 18 years of age or application must be completed by a parent or legal guardian if prospective grant recipient is less than 18 years of age.
