Glen Dow Academy, in Spokane, WA, is a member of the American Association of Cosmetology Schools. The AACS is a non-profit organization, founded in 1924, and is comprised of privately owned beauty schools across the United States. Member schools specialize in cosmetology, skin care, nails, barbering, and massage.

Students who attend AACS member schools are eligible to apply for a number of scholarships, to help defray the cost of a beauty school education. The non-profit Beauty Changes Lives Foundation awards more than 10 different scholarships to prospective, new or advanced students every year. Since 2013, the organization has awarded more than $1.5 million in aid to students attending cosmetology, esthetics, nail, massage, makeup and advanced courses. That amounts to more than 300 scholarships!
