Our scholarship program was created for students that need assistance with electrology tuition expenses. Please note that these scholarships are not designed to assist those who absolutely cannot afford any tuition. Each scholarship of $2,000 applies only to full 600 hour programs for licensed States. Contact us for information on partial scholarships for our 350 hour and 600 hour programs designed for unlicensed States.
It is important to note that your enrollment and completion of Electrology School leads to the professional designation of becoming a Licensed Electrologist (L.E.). Electrologists are self-employed and licensed business people who grow the economy through their entrepreneurial efforts in the job market. As part of our mission it is our intention to reward this spirit through scholarships.
We work with successful applicants so that they can "quick-start" their business plans through a solid education. This ultimately will lead to financially independence and new businesses that contribute to the greater good of society in general. Applicants with prior skill sets that prepare them for self-employment will be looked upon favorably.
