At Aveda Institutes Boise and Twin Falls, we offer financial aid to students who qualify. Financial aid is, by far, one of the most common worries our potential students have. We’re here to make sure you get your questions answered to the best of our abilities. We don’t want anything to hold our students back from becoming the well-educated beauty professionals that we know they can be.
What is Financial Aid?
Financial aid helps students pay for school. Sometimes you have to pay aid back, and sometimes you don’t. It can come in several ways. For more information on the types of aid, check out the FAFSA website.
- Federal Grants
- Federal Loans
- State Aid
By definition, loans usually have to be paid back. The timeframe in which they need to be repaid will vary. Grants and scholarships don’t have to be paid back. If you are interested in veteran’s aid, please contact us right away for more information!
How Do I Apply?
Submit the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA) to find out what you qualify for. Here’s what you’ll need to complete your application.
- An FSA ID. To get this, check out this resource.

Who Should Apply?
The short answer is everyone! All students should apply for financial aid to see what they qualify for.
