Beaver Beauty Academy

Beaver Beauty Academy, a Black-owned cosmetology school, is partnering with Beyonce's Cécred x BeyGOOD Fund, which provides financial support to cosmetology students and professional stylists within the beauty industry. The founder, Dr. Melanie C. Beaver, says that she is proud to be selected as the cosmetology school scholarship partner for Atlanta, Georgia.

Dr. Beaver comments, "Fostering talent, promoting professionalism, and supporting entrepreneurship within the hair industry is deeply important to us. That's why we're partnering with the Cécred x BeyGOOD Fund, which celebrates the influence professional stylists have on hair health and the critical importance of advocating for the salon community."

In total, twenty-five $10,000 financial aid student scholarships will be granted across five cosmetology schools with inclusive curriculums in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and New Jersey.
