Marinello Schools of Beauty's 5th Annual Raw Talent Scholarship
High school seniors have the opportunity to receive an education at Marinello Schools of Beauty and pursue their careers in the beauty industry—if they enter the 5th Annual Raw Talent Scholarship competition. Marinello will award a total of 23 scholarships across 62 campuses, and applicants in each region can win a $10,000 scholarship, a $5,000 scholarship or three one-day professional beauty workshops valued at more than $1,000.
"We are proud to recognize and reward talented high school seniors with an education and career in beauty through our Raw Talent Scholarship competition," says Dr. Nagui Elyas, President of Marinello Schools of Beauty. "To date, we have presented more than 25 students, with natural talent and true passion for the beauty industry, with scholarships and prizes totaling more than $150,000, and we are thrilled to do it again for the fifth year."

To enter, candidates must submit an essay about how they intend to make a difference in the beauty and wellness industry. Marinello's High School Scholarship Committee will evaluate the essays based on criteria such as content, creativity, spelling, syntax and grammar. Essays may be submitted via mail or the Marinello website, where applications and instructions are available, at: www.marinello.com/scholarship.
The second phase of the application process involves a hands-on competition, where candidates will perform hair and makeup looks on their own models at their local Marinello campus. Those interested in the school's Cosmetology program will perform formal updos, while those with Esthetics in mind will focus on putting together a makeup look. The deadline for essay and photograph submissions is April 22, 2013, midnight PST. Scholarship winners will be announced 30 days after the deadline.
