Joe Francis Haircare Scholarship Foundation’s mission is to help deserving students receive financial assistance for the professional training necessary to build successful, long-term careers in the cosmetology industry. Hence they are offering the Cosmetology/Barber program. To be considered, the applicant must be currently applying for entrance into Cosmetology/Barber School, OR actively enrolled in a Cosmetology/Barber program. Applications are accepted from January 1st through June 1st each year.$1, per recipient, paid directly to the cosmetology school of student’s choice.
At first glance, cosmetology students may think that there are few, if any, scholarship programs devoted to helping them achieve their educational and professional goals. Liberal arts scholarships, and scholarships for students pursuing degrees in science and mathematics continue to get the lion’s share of attention. But recently, there has been a nationwide drive to promote vocational programs that prepare students to enter the workforce with the marketable skills they will need to succeed in their chosen careers. This has led to many scholarship programs exclusively devoted to the financial demands of cosmetology students. Whether you are training at a community college, beauty school or vocational school, there may be a scholarship to fit your needs.
