taj salon & spa is pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity for students interested in attending Aveda Institute Minneapolis in Fall 2012. The $20,000 taj scholarship will cover full tuition for one recipient entering the Cosmetology Program.
“Offering this scholarship is close to our hearts,” says Andria Strandin, one of the taj salon & spa owners. “A number of our stylists are graduates of the Aveda Institute; it is one of the most prestigious cosmetology schools in the country and we want to help someone who might not otherwise be able to afford this caliber of education.”
Scholarship applicants must be Minnesota residents, have a high school diploma or G.E.D., plan to attend Aveda Institute Minneapolis in Fall 2012, and show a need for financial assistance. To apply, candidates must attend an Aveda Institute Minneapolis Open House (March 29, April 11, or April 26), submit a 2- to 5-minute video addressing why they should be the recipient of the taj scholarship as well as answer one of three questions related to creativity, mentor influence or the desire to study cosmetology.
The deadline for applications is May 1, 2012. Semi-finalists will be selected by May 15, 2012, based on financial need, creativity and the understanding of what it means to “live life beautifully.” The winning recipient will be announced at taj modé 2012—taj salon & spa’s annual fashion show—on June 2, 2012. In addition to the scholarship, the recipient will receive an internship at taj salon & spa. Details are available at the taj salon & spa website.
