Some types of grants for beauty schools include the ACE Grant, Federal Pell Grant and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, according to BeautySchools.edu. Potential students can also find a variety of scholarships for beauty school, including the National Coalition of Estheticians, Manufacturers/Distributors and Associations Esthetician Scholarship, Sport Clips Scholarship and Joe Francis Haircare Scholarship.
The ACE Grant is one of multiple grants and scholarships offered through the American Association of Cosmetology Schools, explains BeautySchools.edu. The AACS website provides more information about the grant, including eligibility and the application. Many different beauty and cosmetology schools accept this grant. The Federal Pell Grant and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant are both grants provided by the government for different types of schools, including beauty schools. The Pell Grant is for low-income students, while the FSEOG is for students who not only qualify for the Pell Grant but need additional assistance in paying tuition.
As far as scholarships go, there are a few specifically tailored to beauty and cosmetology school students. For example, the NCEA Esthetician Scholarship requires a 250-word essay about the financial situation of the student along with the application. The Sport Clips Scholarship provided through the AACS has no limits as to how many students can apply or receive the scholarship, notes BeautySchools.edu.
