Breaking into the cosmetology industry is difficult and the tools needed to succeed in cosmetology are tough to come by.
Most states across the US require around 1,500 hours of school before you can graduate and be approved for a cosmetology license. While that is a substantial amount of time, many students in the industry spend even more time paying off their debt.
To help students get past financial barriers toward their aspirations in cosmetology and the beauty industry, the WiseGeek Cosmetology No-Essay Scholarship will be awarded to one student interested in pursuing a career in cosmetology, hair styling, hair design, or a related field.
The application deadline is Dec 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Dec 15, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 15, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
