Miller Family Foundation Funds Scholarship Program

A gift from the Sydell & Arnold Miller Family Foundation is funding beauty and wellness scholarships that will be administered by the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation. The Millers’ gift of $1,000,000 over a 10-year period will support new scholarships for cosmetology and esthetic students, as well as hairstylists. There will be eight Beauty Changes Lives scholarships yearly in four different categories that honor various segments of the industry, including:

The Arnold M. Miller “Findaway” Scholarship will celebrate students who demonstrate the “findaway” attitude and entrepreneurial spirit that defined Arnold Miller’s career. Awarded annually, this scholarship will fund up to $25,000 toward tuition for one student enrolled at an American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) member school.

The Sydell L. Miller “Total Image” Esthetic Scholarship honors Sydell Miller’s prescient insight years ago that skin care, esthetic treatments, cosmetics, and body care would become key growth drivers in the professional salon industry. One $15,000 scholarship will be awarded annually to an esthetic student enrolled in an AACS member school.

The NextGen Advanced Education Scholarship will be awarded to two licensed hairstylists working in their craft for two-to-five years. Winners will personify Sydell and Arnold Miller’s philosophy of being a student throughout life’s journey. Awarded annually, each scholarship will fund up to $5,000 toward an advanced educational program at a beauty school, advanced academy, or manufacturer’s academy program.

Scholarship applications will be accepted from October 1 through January 31, 2018. For more information, go to www.beautychangeslives.org.
