Finances shouldn’t stop you from applying to beauty school. But, we understand that it can be a big concern for many of our students. If this is your concern, then this page is for you. We hope that you’ll look into different financial aid* resources, such as scholarships!

A scholarship is awarded money that pays either some or all your tuition. One of the biggest advantages of scholarships is that they are awarded independently, which means that even if you don’t qualify for other financial aid options, there may still be scholarships out there for you!

Here at Avalon Institute, we are proud to offer scholarships to qualifying students as another way to make educational dreams possible. For more information on the financing options we offer, contact our admissions team and learn more about what you may qualify for.

Types of Scholarships

Luckily, scholarships aren’t just for traditional colleges. There are many different types of scholarships out there available specifically for beauty school students. At Avalon Institute, we proudly accept scholarships from other organizations and sources. Some of the different types of scholarships we accept include:

  • High School Scholarships: These are offered to eligible high school students who wish to enroll in a licensing program before they get their high school diploma
  • Need-Based Scholarships: These are offered to students who demonstrate financial need.
  • Non-Essay Scholarships: These types are typically the easiest to fill out because they don’t require an essay.
  • Private Scholarships: These are funded through companies, foundations, or service groups.

These are just a few different types of scholarships available to you. If you want to start applying for scholarships but aren’t sure where to look, one of the best resources for scholarships for beauty students is the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS). They partner with industry sponsors to provide deserving beauty students with grants and scholarships available to students who have been accepted to their beauty school or are currently enrolled.

We have always taken special care to make our education accessible to all who are interested in building a career in beauty. As well as accepting outside scholarships, we also offer internal scholarships. For more information on scholarships offered by us, contact us and someone from our admissions team will answer any questions you may have.

While being a student here at Avalon I enjoyed my experience. The instructors were fun understanding and overall just a great time. I learned a lot while I was here and can’t wait for the next chapter in my life.

I’m a stage 1 student and I absolutely love it here! Ms.gg is the best teacher ever!!!! She teaches us many things and encourages us to get out of our comfort zone! I can’t wait to learn so much more from this school! The environment and the students are super friendly and incredible to get along with.
