Education does not come cheap, cosmetology school included. But don’t be afraid! There are options out there. Scholarships and grants are not just for traditional colleges. It is important to see what is out there, and it will take some work. The best thing about scholarships and grants is that they do not need to be repaid, like loans do. It will be some work, but the benefits are worth being able to realize your dream as a licensed cosmetologist.
It is important to narrow down what schools you may want to attend and how much you need. Many accredited cosmetology schools offer scholarships for students. So getting on the phone and asking the financial aid department is the first step. The second step is making Google your new best friend. Try any combination of keywords ( beauty school scholarships. cosmetology grants, beauty school grants) and do not be afraid to apply. There are also awards out there for specific programs.
There are different requirements for every scholarship and grant, so the important thing is to apply to those for which you qualify. Upon receiving a grant or scholarship, many of them have options to continue receiving benefits as well, such as if you maintain a certain grade point average. And remember to not be swayed into not applying if the amount of the actual award isn’t high — any and every bit helps, even if it just goes toward books and supplies.
