Scholarships with December Deadlines

December is such a popular month because it is filled with holidays, which generally makes people happy, as well as the idea of the approaching new year, which could also mean a new start for some.

For students, it usually means time with family and friends that they haven’t seen since Thanksgiving, or perhaps even longer. It means getting away from school, school books, school work, pretty much everything about school. It means a time to relax a little bit before the Spring semester begins again in January (or February).

Thus, as a student, this could be your most opportune time to open up the laptop (let’s be honest, it was open to Netflix anyway) and apply for some of these awesome scholarship opportunities with December Deadlines.
