Dear Scholarship Applicant:
Congratulations on taking your first step in becoming a professional in the beauty/barber industry.

Our Scholarship Program is expressly designed to encourage such potential winners to enter the profession as living proof of the substantial advantages of a Salon Schools Group Diploma. Ohio State Schools of Cosmetology, Nationwide Beauty Academy and The Hair Experts Barber School are all proud members of the Salon Schools Group family.
We are serious about this commitment to encourage the very best students to train with us. This year, for example, we have budgeted over $325,000 to be awarded to deserving high school graduates! You could be one of them – if you apply!
An outgoing personality and the ability to get along with others are major qualifications for success in our industry. The Scholarship Committee gives much consideration to these attributes, and it is one of the reasons we require a personal interview of all Scholarship Candidates. In addition, school records are evaluated with emphasis on good attendance, Guidance Counselor recommendations, school and outside activities and grades.
While it is not necessary to have top class standing, we are looking for evidence of interest, enthusiasm and effort – necessary for success in almost any endeavor. It is important that you apply as soon as possible. Candidates are evaluated (and Scholarships awarded) on an individual basis as applications are received. Do not delay! Please note that scholarships are only available during your senior year of high school. If you are a high school senior, apply now as follows:

Know anyone who has a pet hedgehog, much less two hedgehogs? Then meet Sabrina Walden, “mommy” of Murff and Cutie, also mother of one human. Sabrina will be involved in every aspect in your term as a student as she assists other staff members in making your education relevant, fun and hassle free!
While grounded firmly in reality (mostly) she enjoys other-worldly pursuits through MARCON (Multiple Alternate Reality Convention) – with Steam Punk being her favorite alternate genre and Sci Fi being her favorite reading material. (Werewolf? There wolfe!)
Don’t let her makeup, stylish nails and red hair fool you. Janice knows her way around…horses! Raised in Pennsylvania-Dutch Country (yes she speaks that as well as French), Janice is an equestrian of some note, (English Side-Saddle) placing 4th representing Pennsylvania at Madison Square Garden in NYC, during an International Competition.
Now focusing on different manes, Janice has more connections in the Ohio beauty industry than just about anybody. As the long time “face” of Nationwide Beauty Academy and The Spa School, Janice has placed dozens and dozens of SSG graduates in Ohio salons. If there is a salon job opening, Janice knows about it because our graduates are so much in demand.
Janice will be the first to tell you, don’t be brand-washed! Call her at 614-888-1092 to join our family of locally-owned independent schools. Janice works from her office in Columbus, not from another time-zone.
