We offer the ECBC scholarship, Luse Hairs Scholarship and ACE GRANTS to students enrolled in the cosmetology/barber program.  We also provide information in our school catalog on other scholarship opportunities avialable.

Federal Pell Grant

Unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree. The amount depends on your financial need, costs to attend school, status as a full-time or part-time student, and plans to attend school for a full academic year or less.
