“Sport Clips is proud to financially support members of our industry’s future workforce,” says Julie Vargas, vice president of career opportunities for Sport Clips. “As the last two years have shown us, investing in our frontline workforce is critical, which is why we’ve doubled the award amount from our previous scholarships to recognize deserving, aspiring professionals.”

Sport Clips has almost 1,900 stores with a presence in all 50 U.S. states and Canada and has awarded more than $66,000 in scholarships to promote quality cosmetology education. The Sport Clips Scholarship Program was created to provide financial support to qualified students enrolled in American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS). The goal of the program is to help students gain skills, training and education to begin a successful career in the continually-growing field of cosmetology.
