TSPA Memorial Scholarship

The Carol Jo Sicheneder “Mrs. S” Memorial Scholarship was created to honor a woman who was very special to everyone at TSPA Altoona. She and her husband purchased the school in 1982, where she served as both co-owner and educator for the rest of her life. Carol wanted to share her passion for cosmetology and learning to the next generation of beauty professionals. That’s why we offer this scholarship of $4,000 to graduating seniors in the Altoona area. This scholarship is available to those that qualify and must be used toward tuition at TSPA Altoona. You can read more about the scholarship’s backstory here, or fill out the form on our website for more information about deadlines and requirements.

If you were attending a university, college, or trade school in the past and had to leave for whatever reason, we have a scholarship for you! The TSPA Second Chance Scholarship was created specifically for former students to use for their personal investment in beauty school. Keep in mind that this is an annual scholarship offer, the date for 2018 has passed, but there will be a new date in 2019! Everyone deserves a second chance to achieve their goals and dreams.
