In its quest to continually provide salon owners with opportunities to extend their education and keep abreast of the latest developments in the industry, the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) is calling for entries to its 2017 PBA Scruples Scholarship program.

Sponsored by Scruples, a fashion-forward manufacturer of professional haircare products that is dedicated to serving the needs of hairstylists and their clients, the program will award one scholarship of up to $1,000 to a new salon owner who has been open for fewer than 12 months as of Dec. 31, 2017 and with fewer than four stylists on staff.

The scholarship can be applied to business or technology-related education, as well as resources for the salon owner. This scholarship is not for technical education or salon equipment.

“The Professional Beauty Association strives to advance our industry through programs and initiatives that support growth and sustainability,” said PBA Executive Director Steve Sleeper. “The PBA Scruples Scholarship is one way we can help salon owners who are just starting to build their businesses access resources and tools to help them continue to build a solid foundation for their business.”

Applicants can submit their completed application online by visiting before Dec. 31, 2017, which is the official application deadline. All entries will be reviewed by a committee appointed by the PBA Chair. The Scholarship funds awarded must be used in 2018.
