New Cosmetology School Scholarship Available to New Students

Students look for financial help attending cosmetology school might be able to get some help from a new beauty school scholarship fund announced this month.

The new scholarship is being offered by the Beauty Schools Marketing group and will grant one cosmetology school student a $2,500 scholarship each quarter of the year.

Beauty school scholarships are available from many other resources and award varying amounts of scholarship funds to new and existing beauty or cosmetology school students. Some of the more prominent scholarships available are offered by industry organizations. Though some of these types of cosmetology school scholarships are more competitive and difficult to obtain, the reward for successfully winning one of these scholarships (or grants) can equate to a higher monetary value.

Cosmetology school grants available for students are available from the government (both federal and state in some areas), as well as private organizations who are invested in creating successful cosmetologists in the industry. Popular cosmetology school scholarships and grants include those offered by the NCA Sally Beauty Scholarships fund, which awards $10,000 worth of scholarships each year in increments of $1,000 rewards to successful applicants.

Another scholarship fund, the APWU Vocational Scholarship Program, awards up to $3,000 in scholarship funds for students who already attend an accredited cosmetology school. The nail and cosmetics company OPI awards $500 each month to students attending cosmetology schools within the company’s preferred network of institutions.

In a press release earlier this month, the Beauty Schools Marketing Group said that they are excited to announce that they are now taking applications for their scholarship. (Citizens of Florida, New York, Rhode Island and other states that regulate scholarships are not eligible for the scholarship.) To qualify for the new beauty school scholarship, aspiring cosmetologists must be at least eighteen years old, a United States citizen, and plan to attend a college or beauty school they have never attended in the past.
