To help cosmetology students reach their career goals, Sport Clips Haircuts partnered with American Crew to award 15 students Access to Cosmetology Education (ACE) scholarships this year. To be considered for an ACE scholarship, candidates met both academic and video requirements established by Sport Clips and American Crew. Each recipient was presented a $1,000 scholarship to help with educational expenses.
This is the sixth year Georgetown, Texas-based Sports Clips Haircuts, which has more than 1,200 stores across the country, has awarded scholarships to eligible students enrolled at an American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) member school. To date, $40,000 in scholarship money has been awarded to promote quality cosmetology education.
“Our support of cosmetology students spans across the nation,” says Julie Vargas, Sport Clips Haircuts senior director of career opportunities. “We want these stylists to be equipped with the proper training and skills they need to be successful in the haircare industry upon graduation. We value their interest in quality education, and we’re honored to assist them with their career goals.”
