Scholarship Application

Dear Scholarship Applicant:

Congratulations on taking your first step in becoming a professional in the beauty/barber industry. At Salon Schools Group we strive to prepare all students for a satisfying career in an industry whose annual profits are in the BILLIONS! Excellent students become successful graduates – lifetime ambassadors of our school! 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!
