Cosmetology scholarship

Apply now to win $1,000 towards starting your dream career in the beauty industry!

Deadline: August 31, 2020

Our mission at CPT Guru is to help as many people as possible to pass their licensing exams and start their exciting beauty career.

Logging the required hours at a great beauty school (or completing an apprenticeship) is an important part of maintaining standards in the profession, but we know that it can put many students under significant financial strain.

That’s why we’re delighted to announce our inaugural $1,000 cosmetology scholarship!

How it works

To be as inclusive as possible, the application and award process is extremely simple.

  • Check the eligibility requirements below.
  • Complete the form on this page.
  • As soon as the deadline passes, our team will select a winner.
  • If you win, you’ll receive $1,000!

We know everyone’s situation is different, so we don’t stipulate that the $1,000 is spent on beauty school fees. If you want to spend it on materials, helping towards your living expenses while you study, or advancing your career, that’s fine with us!

The scholarship can be combined with any other scholarships, grants and other financial aid.

Eligibility requirements

  • Cosmetology
