Going to beauty school can be a great way to start a career you love and enjoy a happy future. However, like most schools, beauty schools have tuition, fees, and other costs that can’t always be paid out of pocket. We understand that the cost of tuition may stop you from pursuing your dream. Fortunately, with financial aid* and scholarships, investing in your future can become simpler.

At The Salon Professional Academy San Jose, we don’t want finances to get in your way. That is why we have created this list of scholarships that can help you fund your beauty school journey. Take a look at each one and find out what you can do to qualify.
