How to Find Cosmetology Scholarships for International Students

Education is all about expanding horizons so it should not be a surprise that many international students are interested in studying in the US and vice versa. Being exposed to different culture, aesthetic inclinations, and fashion trends can truly open minds. Yet despite its many benefits, only a handful of people eventually push through with their plans to study abroad. The biggest issue is finances as travel and living expenses are not trivial. Neither is the tuition fee for a full term, even if it is for short cosmetology courses. Finding a few cosmetology scholarships for international students would certainly help.

Beauty School Scholarship Program

Scholarships for post-secondary education are quite abundant. American citizens who wish to take up a vocational course or a traditional 4-year course will be able to locate a myriad of programs online.

However, those that accept international students are far fewer. Although they are out there, people need to search more patiently to find them. One quick way to go about it is to contact the top cosmetology schools and ask them about the possibility of receiving financial aid. Many of them provide assistance to promising students who are able to meet their criteria. Try this route first and see what comes up.

Soroptimist International’s Women’s Opportunity Awards

Thousands of non-governmental organizations around the world are working hard to uplift the living conditions of women. Some do this through livelihood projects while others give out scholarships to those who need and deserve them.

Soroptimist International champions the rights of women and runs different programs in many countries. One of these is the Women’s Opportunity Awards which aims to empower by providing financial support in terms of getting advance education and skills. It is open to the residents of the 19 member countries of Soroptimist International of the Americas who can demonstrate financial need. About $1.5 million worth of aid is given away each year.

Cosmetologist Chicago’s President Scholarship

Cosmetologists who wish to pursue advanced studies should definitely look into Cosmetologist Chicago’s President Scholarship. Successful applicants may be awarded with as much as $2,500 every year to help finance their continuing education. It may be extended to three years during which the recipients are expected to complete high level seminars and classes. In order to be eligible to apply, people have to be a member of International Nail Technicians Association, American Association for Esthetics, Cosmetólogos Latinos, or Cosmetologists Chicago. The classes may be taken in the US or abroad. Past recipients have gone to schools in Paris, London, and other fashion capitals of the world.

As you can see, there are fantastic opportunities out there for cosmetologists who dream big and are willing to work to make them happen. Schedule a tour today and begin your journey as a student and beauty professional.
