The direct selling beauty company's education scheme is available to representatives globally

Avon has announced it will double its academic scholarship scheme for Avon Representatives.

The incentive will now see 200 top-selling Avon Representatives – or their children and grandchildren – given financial support during their education at university or college.

Each recipient across 25 countries will receive US$2,100 to put towards their academic expenses.

Commenting on the project, Jan Zijderveld, CEO of Avon, said: "Avon is built on a long legacy of deep investments in women.

“We support six million beauty entrepreneurs to run their own businesses, in their own way and on their own terms and we understand the pivotal role of education, skills development and training in fueling a ripple effect for many years to come.
