I've tried FAFSA, Wells Fargo, and one other place I can't remember and cosmetology schools aren't listed so I can't apply. Does anyone have any ideas about where I should try?Answer Question

You have to find a school that is approved to receive federal financial aid. Typically, all community colleges do, and they also have cosmetology classes. Some private trade schools also receive federal financial aid but others choose not to participate or aren't approved to participate. What city/state are you in? You should still apply for FAFSA once you find a few schools you want to compare for their financial aid offers. Financial aid can differ between schools because some schools supplement with private or institutional grants. You could also look find a list of institutions granting cosmetology licenses or degrees through your state's licensing page or accreditation agencies.

Also, if you are currently unemployed, your state may have a program where they will provide an additional grant (on top of Pell grants I believe) for you to attend school. Check with your state's local unemployment agency web site.
