Cosmetology Grants

It is practically not possible for all students to get scholarships and merits. Without grants, many students would not be able fulfill their needs and career interests. Besides traditional college degrees, grants can also pay for an education in many other professions.

Cosmetology is one field that has surpassed its commercial expectations. Today’s fashion-forward generation demands an ultra-competitive arts-styled ambiance. Hairstylists and makeup professionals must give it their A-game, requiring specialist training.

The small beauty salons may remain a mainstay on the streets of Anytown, U.S.A., but this isn’t enough for the career-oriented students of today. Superlative training can prepare them for exciting and lucrative careers in the film and fashion industry.

The demand for high quality stylists is continuously increasing in the general market category. These cosmeticians can expect professional-grade salaries and exciting high-powered careers.

What are Cosmetology School grants?

A cosmetology school grant or scholarship is a financial gift for aspiring cosmeticians. These grants, used to pay tuition, don’t need to be paid back. Any amount remaining after paying for the course fees belongs to the student.

Studying cosmetology in prestigious schools (and even in regular reputable schools) does not come cheap. A regular course in cosmetology will cost anywhere between $6500 and $10000.

While still in high school or college, aspiring cosmeticians should talk to their school’s adviser or counselor on grants specific to beauty schools. They often have a list of grants from various specializations. If you’ve enrolled in a cosmetology school, they may also have counselors who can help.

Most grant applications can be completed online.

Cosmetology Admissions

The guidelines for cosmetology courses and the accreditation for schools is regulated by states. To avail of financial aid, you should choose a school that meets state-specific licensing requirements. The National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts & Science (NACCAS) monitors the accredited schools.

Not all states require a high school diploma for students aspiring for a career in cosmetology. Some states also accept GED equivalent.

Some cosmetology schools insist on admission test before enrolling. The cosmetology program varies in different schools. These span anywhere between a few months and up to two years, depending on the specialization of the study.

How Grants are Awarded

Cosmetology school grants and scholarships are awarded on the basis of needs and disadvantaged backgrounds. Others are provided on the basis of merits. Talent plays a very big role in the field of cosmetology. The grades and potential of the student can get them a free or discounted ride in many reputed cosmetology schools.

Regardless of what other people say, grades in high school and college do matter. A sterling report card can increase you chances of winning the grant and scholarship. Larger technical schools often award more grants than specialist schools.

How to apply for cosmetology Grants

Financial assistance in traditional colleges and universities is easy to approach. The same cannot be said about cosmetology schools. Students entering college have several resources at their disposal. Cosmetology students, meanwhile, would have to carve their own way.

  1. Find a cosmetology school that suits your requirements. Inquire if they have their own scholarship program. If not, participate in a state-based, federal, or corporate-supported grant program.
  2. Apply for the grant or scholarship through interactive forms. Send the forms through the participating program administrator.

Types of Cosmetology Grants

Merit-based Grants: The applicant must demonstrate talent and skills in abilities such as artistic make-up and hair design to win these grants.

Need-based Grants: The applicant should be interested in a career in cosmetology but is restrained by financial circumstances. These grants may cover all (or part) of the tuition and provide extra to cover living costs.

Group-Specific Grants: The main qualification to obtaining this grant is belonging to underrepresented groups (such as those based on race, religion, or national origin). Applicants are filtered based on demographic affiliation. The final recipient gets due consideration based on other additional factors.

Institutional Cosmetology Grants: These grants are school-specific. The applicant must study in the same school to get the requisite grant.

General Cosmetology Grants: This covers the other scholarship programs provided by salons, corporate entities, beauty schools, and specific websites.

Where to apply for Cosmetology Grants

Collection of make up

Students aspiring to study in cosmetology schools can apply for funding from The American Cosmetology Education (ACE) Grant provided by the American Association of Cosmetology Schools and its corporate sponsors. Getting a grant from here will depend on the following data:

  • School you want to attend and their participation in this grant
  • The status of your interview and application in the chosen school
  • Your financial status

Since most cosmetology programs fill up fast, you may have a waiting period. This is especially true you applied for grant subsidies. Here are some of the grants awarded through the ACE grant.

Sport Clips Scholarship. Sport Clips awards several scholarships worth $1000 to students from AACS member schools. This is limited to one recipient from each school, chosen through a selection committee comprising Sport Clips Area Developers, SCI Support, and team leaders.

American Health and Beauty Aids Institute (AHBAI)Scholarship. A Chicago-based foundation, AHBAI issues scholarships under the Fred Luster, Sr. Education Foundation. Over the years, the institute has provided more than $670,000 in grants to African American cosmeticians.

School Grants

There are many cosmetology schools that provide their own grants. These include the following:

Model College of Hair Design, MN. The college has high-quality programs in cosmetology with on-campus residence. The grants are awarded regularly and can be applied for through their online process.

Oregon Office of Student Access and Completion. Residents of Oregon State can benefit from this state-specific grant. Students in approved cosmetology programs can receive $600 in grants.

John Pelloni Memorial Scholarship. Eligible cosmetology students in California’s Cerritos College get an award of $300.

Five scholarships of $1000 each are awarded to high school graduates (below 26 years). Three grants of $1000 each are given to PBA members. The third category is for the children and grandchildren of PBA members seeking advanced education in cosmetology.

Walla Wall Community College, WA. This school has its own cosmetology program and offers a broad array of scholarship options for its students.

Massage Magazine Scholarship Program. This is given to five students studying for their massage therapy license to the tune of $1000 each.

Federal Grants and Financing

One other option to finance your cosmetology education is federal financing. There are various types of federal financing available through accredited cosmetology schools.

Federal Pell Grant

Pell Grants can be used as a foundation for financial assistance and supplemented by other sources. Under this grant money is paid out annually, the amount disbursed is based on various aspects of the student’s education including financial situation.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant

This grant is based solely on availability of funds and are distributed by the Department of Education to participating schools. Students can apply for the same through their respective schools. To be eligible for this grant, the students should have extreme financial need. Other monetary assistance the student receives will also be considered.


The other thing you will need to remember is that grants and scholarships, might still come short of your tuition and living expenses. To cover the difference, you may need to take out a student loan. Your school counselor would help find low interest loans with flexible repayment terms.

Federal Stafford Loan

Once known as the Guaranteed Student Loan, this is a low interest loan that students can receive through external lending institutions and agencies with a guaranteed repayment by the government. Stafford Loans come in two forms: subsidized and unsubsidized. Under the subsidized scheme, the interest is paid by the government while the student is still in school and for 6 months after course completion.

Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students

This is an alternative loan that aims at helping parents provide for the educational expense of their children. This fund is aimed at helping parents secure themselves against borrowing on their assets and properties.

G.I. Bill.

People who served in the military can use their G.I. Bill to fund their cosmetology education. This bill aims to meet the expenses of vocational and education training. However, these grants are school- and state-specific and are not available in all places.

Private Student Loans

A few good sources of private loan funding include from Salle Mae and the Citibank Student Loan Division. These lending institutions give a grace period of up to six months after completion to start the loan repayment program. Remember that these can still cause financial burdens. Loans outside federal lending options should only be a last option.

Beyond Grants

Be careful with the financial assistance. Some need to be paid back immediately (after the completion of your course) while some don’t need to be repaid. Apart from grants and scholarships, you can also choose sponsorships, contests, and similar opportunities supported by corporate backers.

Career options

Depending on their specialization, cosmetologists can be employed as hair-dressers and hair-stylist, barbers, skin care specialists, manicurists and pedicurists, and shampooers. Advanced courses in cosmetology open other careers such as aromatherapist, cosmetician, makeup artist, massage therapist, and film and theater hair specialist. The most lucrative field for cosmetologists is undoubtedly the fashion and film industry.

You can find a job almost as soon as you are out of school. Some schools even have placement options to help you land a new career off the bat. If you are good at what you do, you could consider building your own business. A few corporations might even be impressed enough to help you build your new enterprise.

    I enrolled to begin class in Jan 2012 and have to secure grants/scholarships to fund school. At 39, I have decided to pursue something fun and creative, and not just a job. Many scholarships are for recent grads, but what about the moms that are returning to school while raising their children. Financially we carry more load than a teenager, yet have less opportunities. Is there something more for us to benefit from?

    I am seeking some assistance with paying the tuition for Regency Beauty Institute in Greenfield, Wisconsin. I see the list of several grants and scholarships, but I do not know how I go about applying or being considered for any of them. I see other comments include details about their personal situations, so I am guessing I need to do the same, for that appears to be part of the process. Therefore, I am 36 years old, married and have 3 children. I do have a degree, but unfortunately it is in real estate, and of course that is not a promising career field in this economy.
    My most recent job downsized their staff, and I was part of the cut. I do not qualify for unemployment, and we are struggling to make ends meet. All of our savings went to pay for the burial of my father, who passed away unexpectedly in April. He had no life insurance, savings, or anything. I being an only child had the burden of taking on his expenses, and I am still indebted to the funeral home. To make matters worse, I cannot find a job in my field of expertise.
    I ultimately have decided to return to school for cosmetology because it has always interested me, and I know it is a career I would enjoy doing, as well as it is stable, for which is what my family needs.
    We are on food stamps and at risk of losing our home, and I do not want to see my children uprooted because I cannot provide for them as I should. I really need to find a way to make paying for my tuition possible so I can have a future for myself and my family. I only qualify for the Pell grant, which of course will not be enough, so we really need some assistance. I hope this comment and website will lead me in the right direction, or be the answer to our prayers.

    I am a student at a Private Cosmetology Institution who does not offer any Scholarship insensitive and I encourage your request in granting me some funding to support my education and endowment to promote my study here as successful as it is right now. Our class requires us to plan, develop, and execute as Stylist and to become Career Oriented and to do so, my anticipation on your organization/foundation support could be most rewarding to me in attending promotions of Hair Shows, purchasing most needed appliances (not included in Kit), obtaining hair supplies needed to demonstrate hair care for Clients we services on the Clinic Floor and to prepare me to go before the State Board with the necessary tools or equipment at passing to achieve my Masters License in Cosmetology. My seven hundred (700) hours is significant to me and reaching the required one thousand/five hundred (1500) is very hard because individual assistance is much needed. We are able to receive credits toward any participation or attendance at any function. I previously have a BS Degree in Business Ad and disable and not able to work and as you possibly know that with a degree; one is not eligible for any Hope Grants and more less, none other. By my petition for donations from this particular business for monetary gifts, a sponsor or even sample hair products in Promotional Products that you may be aware to be benefit to Cosmetology Industry. If your foundation is interested in donating to my being a candidate, I could greatly appreciate your input. All donations would be recognized as donated from your establishment at the institution, in the resident community newsletter and possibly in the local newspaper (if my ability to interest them in a human-interest story for the paper). This letter and my letter of Thank you indicating your exact donation are sufficient documentation of your donation for tax purposes.
    This letter and my letter of Thank you indicating your exact donation are sufficient documentation of your donation for tax purposes.

    I’m hoping to start school on Jan. 3 2012. My tuition is $16,200 plus my additional cost (lab cost and supply kit) brings me to an overwhelming total of $17,706. Thats a lot of money. I got my fafsa completed and between that and the school, I’ve been granted $8,005. I was also given an unsub. loan worth $2,885 and a sub. loan worth $5,490. I know that’s a lot of money right there but that’s more loan money than I want to pay back. Even if I did use the grant and the loans, I’m still short $1,326. I know that doesn’t seem like much but it is for me and my family. I don’t have a job, my dad’s on disability, and there is no one in or around my family that can afford to help me. I’m so lost and desperate. I’ve been searching the internet for different grants but I can’t find anything. Maybe I’m just not looking in the right places. Any advise?

    I’m interest in this grant for cosmetology school. I just recently found out that I had to start my hours over due to the fact that I owe my last school money and they will not release my officail transcript. I was a cash paying student and still owe that institute, however I choose not to let that hinder my goals and dream. I am set to attend Empire Beauty School on June 18th. This Grant could really help pay my tuition. I am also a single mom trying to be a positive role model for my son to look up too. I just recently lost my job in April so I decided why wait for a job to come to me, this is a great opportunity for me to go back to what I love, HAIR! I wanted to be proactive in my future so I enrolled, now I’m trying to get some grants to help sail my ship a little more smoother. God Bless.

I recently found out that I will not get any money if there is any left over til I reach 1250 hours. My advisor told me to get on welfare. So my search began for scholarships and grants.

It is this fact that makes me come to the conclusion that I want to go to a cosmetology school. I have one picked out near where I live in Florida but I cannot afford the tuition. Unfortunately the school does not have any grants or scholarships available. I am currently unemployed and I feel that this career change would help my financial situation greatly. I would love to one day own my own ‘low cost’ nail salon for financially challenged women. This way I would also be helping the lower class women of my area. Half the battle of being a good person is feeling beautiful. I can help with that if I get this education. Is there any help for me?

    My name is Chelsie Fletcher & I just enrolled to pursue a higher eduction in the Empire Beauty School’s Cosmetology Program! I am currently seeking any financial assistance &/or any leads to help make this dream a reality.


    As for a little bit about myself, I graduated from Lahainaluna High School back in 08 with the National Honors Society. So I’m goal driven & will always shoot for the best that I can give. However after I graduated I chose to go down a different path. I thought I was in love & ran off with my high school sweetheart. It turned out to be a big mistake, he ended up taking me away from my friends, family & all that I had.

    In the long run I’ve experienced a lot of ups & downs in my short life span. I now consider all that I’ve been though as just another learning experience. Which growing up tends to have a lot of those & through our mistakes we find the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Along the way, I’ve discovered I enjoy blogging & would love to own my own website one day to continue that passion. Plus with an education in cosmetology it will help me with my niche. I can work my way up to how to tutorials & make an income through selling products, advertisements & sponsorships. Or even save up to bring out the entrepreneur in me by opening my own beauty spa!

    I have a long list of goals ahead of me & by starting now I will only get closer to making my dreams come true!

    Thank you,
    Chelsie Fletcher

    Hello, first off, my number one problem in life is asking for help, I just don’t do it, but in this case I need direction. I really want to go to a good Cosmo school. I want to learn everything I can and more, than open my own salon. Yes, I dream big. But my financials right now aren’t the best due to some past mistakes. I would love to have some direction on how I can afford to go to a Cosmo program. Please help me with some information. Thank you I greatly appreciate it.

    I need financial assistance in order to a career in cosmetology. The cost is about $23,000 which I currently do not possess. I am a single parent of two teenagers and I need to create a comfortable cash flow of revenue to be able to afford college tuition for the both. I have been working in the casino field for several years which helped me keep my head above sea level. However, working in the casino has brought on some health issues due to it being a smoking environment. Therefore, I’d appreciate any help re:resources I can get. If there’s any suggestions or recommendations feel free to forward the info to me. Thank you in advance and God bless!

    I am currently a cosmotology student at model college of hair design in MN and I absolutely love everything about it. I’ve always loved doing hair and makeup and have learned so much already. My only worry are the finances afterwards. I can’t wait to graduate and have a real job in a salon. I’ve been looking forward to this my whole life and everything’s finally coming together. For anyone reading this who is thinking about going to school to become a Cosmo or anything in this field DO IT!! It’s a blast. -Abigail Vadies

    Hi, I’ve got a question. I was going to enroll into the local beauty school 4 years ago but was deterred by the Phoenix and so I went with them thinking I was making the right decision. I am so upset by my decision to get my bachelor’s as I’ve not been able to find work in my field due to prior felonies. I was told this wouldn’t be an issue but it has been. I went back to the local cosmo school and although she was glad to have me back, she said there’s nothing I can do now (financially)being that I got my bachelors degree And used 4 yrs of it. So, my question is this; is there anyway I can get financial help with this at all, or am I screwed by lightening to the Phoenix and leaving a potentially promising field for one that, well, looks like I’m never going to have any success in finding employment? Thank you to all that maybe able to guide me.

    Hi my name is Aubrey Hill and I am from Michigan. For the last 2 years since 2017 I have been in a beauty school at Jackson area career center where we have to reach to 1500 hrs by the end of our senior year. I am now in my senior year collecting very many color clients as everyone knows I’m my absolute favorite and very good at. But I also love creating beautiful cuts. But will do anything thrown at me. Since last year I have been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease which makes me very sick and some days not be able to get out of bed.. which made my junior year at cos very much on the edge. Then my senior year came where I have to start staying at cosmetology until 6 and I became sicker and my doctors couldn’t really give answers so the sent me in for a upper gi scoop where the found a large hiatal hernia. They said the don’t find them much in 18 year old but I was that one 18 year old that did and have very painful complications. I recently have been old since all my absences from being sick have put me at a position where I cannot graduate with enough hrs and will have to transfer to a private school which I would really really need any kind of help I can get and I never ask for help and do not like it at all unless I feel like I absolutely need it. I want to be able to catch up on my last few hrs before my time at this cosmetology school(Jackson area career center) is over. I really do not want to have to throw all them hrs away because I couldn’t come to school for either sick days or snow days. Cosmetology is my absolute passion and I love nothing more then it and it would crush my heart if I could fulfill my dreams . I wish I could figure out something there but after June 6, 2019 there is no way.. thank you for taking time to read my story. -Aubrey Noelle Hill
