In 2017 Redken awarded $35,000 dollars in scholarships to cosmetology students across the United States.
This money, given out in $1,000 awards, has made attending beauty school more affordable for hundreds of students and helped them achieve their dreams..
This year, The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Holland is proud to call one of the recipients of this amazing award their own.
Come say hello to Sydney Behm, get to know her and learn a bit about applying for the scholarship opportunity.
If you are a current student at TSPA Holland, or are thinking about cosmetology school, schedule an appointment to sit down with our Admissions Coordinator to learn about all of our financial aid options, and scholarships that you could qualify for.
Sydney has been a student of The Salon Professional Academy, Holland for a bit now, in fact, she graduated on October 12th, just a few days ago!
Busy preparing to sit for the state exam, she is eager to step into the next chapter of her life and begin her career! In fact, she has multiple job offers waiting for her, go Sydney!
The icing on top, of course, was receiving this award mere days before her graduation.
About the Award
In order to apply for this scholarship Sydney was required to maintain an 85% GPA and a 90% attendance record. While those numbers may seem high, they were easy to maintain, especially with the passion that she has for the beauty industry.
It’s a dedication and work ethic that will see her into an amazing career, we are sure!
Applying for the scholarship is easier than you would think. Although it has just a few questions, Sydney admits that answering questions about why she thought she deserved it was the hardest part.
In addition to those difficult responses, she also had to answer questions about her skills and her history.
Sydney was shocked that she was one of the few awarded this scholarship this year, but it was a happy surprise! As she applied to help alleviate some of the cost of her cosmetology education, that $1,000 award will definitely help with that.
If you are thinking of applying for the Redken Scholarship, or one of the many other scholarships we are affiliated with, Sydney will be the first to tell you to go for it! No matter what the result, the time is worth it! One word of advice Sydney gives is that if you chose to apply, be as open and honest as possible.
From everyone here at The Salon Professional Academy, Holland we would like to congratulate Sydney on her award, and wish her luck in the beautiful future that awaits her.
