If you’re planning on studying in the field of cosmetology, you’d be a fool not to apply for the following top 10 beauty school scholarships and grants:
1. ACE Grant
Students taking their first steps to begin a career in cosmetology can apply for ACE Grants, which are sponsored by the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS), the Beauty and Barber Supply Institute (BBSI), and the Cosmetology Advancement Foundation (CAF).
2. AHBAI Scholarships
The Fred Luster, Sr. Education Foundation was established in 1991 and has awarded nearly $ 500,000 in scholarships to date–all in honor of the late founding AHBAI board member Fred Luster, Sr.
3. American Health & Beauty Aids Institute Esthetician Scholarships
The American Health and Beauty Aids Institute awards esthetician scholarships valued at $ 250 and $ 500 each.
4. Jeannette Rankin Foundation
Low income women, age 35 and over, may qualify for scholarships from this foundation to pursue a technical or vocational education, associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree at an accredited school. If you’re 35 or older and returning to school for an education in beauty, you should definitely apply for this award.
