Ohio State University’s Cosmetology School has announced it will be changing the way it awards cosmetological scholarships.
The move comes as Cosmetological Research Council of Ohio is planning to expand its existing program into more areas and the new program will be able to accommodate both the needs of a graduate student and an intern.
In a statement, OHIO State Director of the Ohio Department of Cosmetologie Services, Dr. Jill Grosch said, “We recognize the growing interest in cosmetologists and our program is the best in Ohio.
We believe this will help to attract more graduates and interns to our school and we are excited to begin our expansion to cover more areas.
We will work with our Cosmetologist Program Manager and other advisors to determine the next steps in this endeavor.”
According to the statement, this is a very important development as Ohio State continues to recruit and retain cosmetologists and other healthcare professionals.
Cosmetology is a specialty of healthcare that focuses on the treatment of the skin, hair and nails and is generally considered to be a more comprehensive specialty.
The university is looking to expand the scope of the school’s current scholarship program by making it easier for graduate students to apply for scholarships and for internships.
It will also be possible to apply through an intern program, which will be offered through OHIO Cosmetologists’ Council.
The school will be using the new scholarship program to increase its intake of students and increase the number of internships available.
