You may not know this, but beauty school is actually a fantastic option for single mothers looking to change or revamp their career path.

Learn more about these available resources and schedule an appointment with an admissions representative today.
The growing expense of attending school is becoming ever more intimidating to aspiring professionals trying to advance their careers. It can also be particularly challenging to work toward these goals if you have children. One option for securing funding to attend school is grants. Many grants are designed specifically for parents (young, single, etc…). These grants are designed to make education accessible to those struggling to attend due to financial and scheduling restrictions.
Grants for Single Mothers
Unlike loans, grants don’t have to be repaid, and don’t depend on things such as credit score or debt-to-income ratio. The process to get a grant typically includes a simple application and letters of recommendation from prior supervisors, educators, and/or coworkers.
Federal grants, such as Pell Grants, only provide money for tuition and you can apply for this at any beauty college or university. There are other grants that may be used to cover the cost of expenses such as books, supplies, and housing. The admissions officer can help you find the grants that are right for you and your particular situation.
Prior Education and Success
Applicants with prior education history can qualify for an Academic Competitiveness Grant that gives $750 the first year and $1500 the second. This, however, requires maintaining a 3.0 grade point average during your time in high school or college. If an applicant maintains good grades during the first year then they can apply for it for the second. This is especially helpful for single mothers, as the funding is available for more than one year in the event that the program can’t be completed in the usual 11 months.
