Cosmetology Scholarships

The cosmetology sector is growing at an astonishingly fast rate. Whether you want to become an esthetician, massage therapist, hair stylist, or something else, there is no better time to start than right now!

Massage therapists are in the highest demand, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics expecting a 21% growth increase between 2019-2029. Estheticians are not far behind, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimating a 17% growth increase between 2019-2029. Hair stylists will actually experience a 1% decrease in growth rate between 2019-2029, which is hardly anything at all. 

Enrollment in cosmetology school will cost anywhere between $6,000-$10,000, depending on a variety of factors. From Aveda Institutes to Paul Mitchell schools, there are plenty of amazing cosmetology and beauty programs that will provide you with the necessary skills to succeed in this industry. Still, that’s a lot of money to pay out of pocket. Scholarships and grants are a great option for students looking to fund their education in cosmetology.

To make things easier for you, we’ve assembled this scholarship list exclusively for aspiring cosmetologists. These scholarships are unique to Bold.org and will not be found anywhere else. Choose any featured scholarship and begin sending applications today!

I am so grateful for the opportunities Bold.org has provided me to help fund my college education. The options are endless, and their commitment to helping and profiling successful students is remarkable.

My college education has and continues to be the most formative experience of my life, and the support and advocacy offered on Bold.org is the greatest recognition I can receive as a student.
