Don Bewley Scholarship Fund

Passion requires careful cultivation.

In keeping Don’s passion for education at the heart of Eufora, and in the spirit of his commitment to serve, we are very proud to be able to offer current and future salon professionals an opportunity to cultivate their craft, learn and grow through the Don Bewley Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The Scholarship Fund features Dual Award Paths, providing financial assistance to deserving students just starting their journey in cosmetology school, as well as Eufora salon professionals seeking advanced education to help them master their craft.

“Education is the key to dream fulfillment. It motivates us to do better, inspires us to learn more, and provides us a foundation for achieving greatness.”
