Online Campus Scholarship Program
We acknowledge the huge under-representation of Black, Indigenous, People of Color and LGBTQ+ in the lash world, and we are committed to changing this. We believe that in order to stand by our mission statement of Diversity is the True Essence of Beauty we have to make the lash industry truly accessible to all. It is vital to encourage and support diversity in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity in students, lash artists, educators, insiders and business owners.
The intention of this program is to elevate unheard voices, make the lash industry more accessible, and grant financial opportunities for those living in the US who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color and LGBTQ+.
These opportunities will be awarded to two (2) individuals each season who show true passion, eagerness and willingness to advance their lash skills and seek to empower and encourage others.
We encourage both licensed artists and students pursuing an aesthetics/cosmetology license to apply for the Online Campus Scholarship Program.
This scholarship includes enrollment in three Borboleta Online Campus Courses: Lash 101, Lash 201, Lash 401, and Lush Lift. The scholarship covers the cost of the awardee’s tuition, manuals and lash kits used during these trainings. Note: this does not include any required technology tools for online classes (i.e. laptops, tablets or mobile devices).
Winners will be selected quarterly.
*Applicants must submit a video essay as part of this application. Your video essay should answer the following questions:
- What excites and/or inspires you about working in the beauty industry?
- If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would that word be and why?
