    Hi my name is Tavonnia Fisher. I am 14 years old and I am about to graduate from Memorial Middle School. I have to important questions. How do I become an excelllent chemist and owning my own business when I make my products instead of giving it to big companies like Cover Girl and etc? I also want to know if Chemist Corner gives away scholarships for my age right now and if they don’t can you please tell me how to get more information on how to recieve scholarships.

      Hi Tavonia,

      That’s a great question, and a really good ambition to have. Cosmetic chemistry has probably the greatest concentration of women working in it. Perry posted a link to the University of Toledo’s new program – I think it’s the first undergraduate program for cosmetic science in the US. I’d bet that if you contacted them, they’d be able to give you really good advice on what you have to do in high school to get into their program.

      In the meantime, there’s nothing that says you can’t start learning about cosmetic science right now. Get your parent’s permission, and then start doing research on products you can make at home. (This will come in handy when you start to do science projects in high school, too) When you get to high school, or even better, right now in middle school, ask your science teacher to help you. All teachers love students who are enthusiastic about learning. We will be happy to help answer questions and point you to fun projects here, too. (But no fair asking us to answer homework questions for you)
