Step-By-Step Guide

Upon acceptance to the university, you can apply for the scholarship. At this time, the Beauty for Ashes Scholarship is only available for people who are pursuing their first bachelor's degree. The scholarship cannot be used for graduate degrees.

We respect the privacy of your situation but do require a written referral from an approved social service agency, advocate, or law enforcement or government official; a T-visa; or other official documentation. We have a dedicated admissions counselor who will work with you through the process of admissions and answer your questions about the university and the scholarship. You own your story. You will never be asked or required to share your story as a condition of the scholarship.

Working with other financial aid, the goal of the Beauty for Ashes Scholarship Fund is to provide full tuition assistance for our accepted students. Scholarship amounts are ultimately determined by the amount of resources available in the fund and awards are made on an annual basis.
