Cosmetology Scholarships

Who doesn’t wish they could make the world just a little bit more beautiful? As a cosmetologist, you’ll be able to do that every day. There’s just one problem: First you need to pay for school. Cosmetology can be a fun and rewarding profession, but completing the required coursework and training can be expensive. Training outside of a traditional college setting, such as some certificate programs in cosmetology, may have limited financial aid opportunities attached. Aspiring cosmetology students also may not think to look for cosmetology scholarships, thinking they need to pay their way through school on their own. But they should because there are lots of scholarship opportunities out there!

Luckily, there are cosmetology scholarships to help those aspiring to work in the industry get an education without having to rely entirely on student loans. Sites like BeautySchoolNetwork.com are excellent resources but so is Scholarships.com and below are just a few of the cosmetology scholarships you can find on our site. For more information on cosmetology scholarships, as well as scholarship awards for your other attributes and interests, conduct a free college scholarship search.
