The Sassoon Scholarship Opens for Entry – All the Details Here
Following a slight delay caused by the Coronavirus outbreak the Sassoon Scholarship is now open for entries.
The lucky recipient of the scholarship will now be given the opportunity to choose two in-person Sassoon Academy courses, as well as two online Sassoon Academy courses.
They will also receive a professional tool kit and can claim up to £50 per day towards travel and accommodation costs, courtesy of Denman International. On top of that, the Scholarship recipient will also receive PR profiling through the Fellowship.
How do you apply for the Sassoon Scholarship?
To apply, hairdressers need to fill out a form on the Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s website, outlining their career achievements to date and explaining why they think they deserve this incredible opportunity. The closing date for entries is Friday 18 September. Following this, 12 candidates will be interviewed online, with a shortlist announced on Friday 25 September.
Fellowship for British Hairdressing president Ken Picton says: “Vidal Sassoon was Patron of Honour for the Fellowship, and dedicated to supporting the next generation of hairdressing talent. The Sassoon Academy offers some of the best training in the world, but it’s not always within reach of every hairdresser. With this in mind, the Sassoon Scholarship was set up with the support of Denman International to make this world-class education available to all. We can’t wait to see this year’s applicants, and are delighted to be able to offer a life-changing education opportunity to one lucky recipient after what has been a challenging year for the industry.”
