Ivy Beauty and Feel Beauty Supply have partnered with the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) to launch the Ivy Beauty x Feel Beauty Supply scholarship program. This program will award 10 African American students $2,350 each in scholarship funds who are currently enrolled in an accredited cosmetology, barbering or hairstyling program that leads to licensure in the US for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Students can apply via the PBA website until the scholarship applications close on January 24, 2023. Applications will then be reviewed by the Ivy Beauty x Feel Beauty supply and PBA teams until March 10, 2023 and will be awarded to students by a committee appointed by the Chair of the Beauty Professional / NCA section of the Professional Beauty Association by May 9, 2023. Any unused Ivy Beauty x Feel Beauty Supply Scholarship funds will be awarded to runner-up applicants.

“We are delighted to be able to collaborate with Feel Beauty Supply and offer a meaningful scholarship to members of the African American community to help them advance towards their beauty careers.
