Did you know that there are cosmetology scholarships available to help with tuition costs? Besides adding flexibility to your career, beauty school can also be affordable. There are many grant options available for students, as well as specific cosmetology scholarships.

Grants and Financial Aid

The best part about grants is that they don’t have to be repaid, and you don’t have to have a certain credit score or be debt free to qualify. Typically applying for a grant involves an application process and letters of recommendation. Grants are available from a variety of sources, including the Federal and state governments. For example, the Federal Pell Grant is designed to help low income students afford the costs of a college education. The grant is open to all college-bound students who meet the minimum income requirements. To learn more about your options for financial aid, please contact our Admissions Department.



This list of scholarships comes from the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS). Please visit their website for more information.  www.beautyschools.org/
