Frequently Asked Questions

How can I apply for the IBE® Scholarship?

To apply for the IBE® Scholarship, an IBE® Platform Educator must visit your school to give a presentation about the program. After the presentation, students will be provided with a QR code and the application details.

What if an IBE® educator has not visited my school?

Unfortunately, students from schools that have not had a visit from an IBE® Platform Educator are not eligible to apply for the scholarship. We recommend speaking with your school administration about inviting an IBE® educator for a presentation. You can find the application here.

What does the scholarship cover?

The scholarship covers $1700 off the total cost of the IBE® certification. This helps reduce the financial burden for students entering the industry.

Who is eligible for the scholarship?

Eligibility is restricted to current cosmetology school students who attend a school that has hosted an IBE® presentation.

How often do Platform Educators visit schools?

Educator visits are scheduled based on demand and availability. If your school is interested in hosting a presentation, they can contact IBE® support HERE to arrange a visit.

What should I expect during the educator’s visit?

During the visit, the IBE® educator will provide an overview of the IBE® certification program, discuss the scholarship opportunity, and answer any questions students may have. This presentation can be tailored specifically for your school, offering the potential to include a cutting or color demonstration, or even a business-focused session. This will give students valuable insights into the benefits of becoming IBE® certified, as well as skills to put into practice after graduation.

How will I know if I’ve been awarded the scholarship?

After applying, selected students will be notified via email to schedule an interview with our admissions director. Further instructions will be provided to complete the certification process.

When is the best time to apply?

In order to qualify for the scholarship, you must apply while you are currently in school. Applications received after your graduation date will not qualify.

How long is the application good for?

The application will expire 6 weeks after your graduation. If you are unable to purchase the IBE® course during this time, you will need to pay full price for the certification.

When will I receive my certification?

Your IBE® Certification will be granted when you have graduated cosmetology school and have an active license.

What do I do in the meantime, until I am fully certified?

We encourage you to keep practicing. Those who complete the IBE® Certification course, early in their schooling, may need to show additional work upon graduation and licensure. You will NOT be able to do IBE® until you are fully certified.
