If BeautySchools.com users choose to apply for one of the BeautySchools.com scholarship drawings, it is asked that they provide their contact information (name, address, email address, etc.) and academic interests and measurements (programs of interest, schools of interest, GPA, SAT, etc.). Information is voluntarily submitted by the user via a secure scholarship application form. BeautySchools.com may share this information with selected institutions of higher education and other educational organizations.
