Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation – Barber or Cosmetology Student Scholarship

The Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation was founded to honor a successful Paul Mitchell School graduate whose struggle against mental illness ended tragically in suicide. The foundation helps cosmetology students, graduates, their families, and cosmetology-related enterprises. Funds have provided educational opportunities, hurricane relief, and support in the fights against breast cancer, domestic violence, and other destroyers of self-esteem.

The grant will allow Beauty Changes Lives the opportunity to offer scholarships to students in nearly every aspect of the beauty industry, including barber, cosmetology, esthetics, and/or nail licensure programs.

Scholarship: Two (2) scholarships will be awarded to barber or cosmetology students and can be applied toward program tuition costs up to $3,750 each.

Requirements: open to new and current students attending an accredited barber or cosmetology program in the United States. Eligible students must complete their program after July 31, 2019 in-order to qualify for the spring scholarship and after January 31, 2020 for the fall scholarship.

Supplemental Questions: Upload a 3-minute video answering the question “Why is beauty your passion and how will a career in beauty fulfill your purpose?”
