Tis’ the Season! Here are 24 Jolly Scholarships to apply for!




It's my favorite time of the year. My kiddos and I are definitely those people that are ITCHING to play Christmas music before Thanksgiving. Alas, I must remind myself that it takes dedication and TONS of willpower but a few songs slip through every year. Sorry. Not sorry. :)

All the anticipation and goodwill just get us so giddy. We can't wait for all the amazing food, the family and the memories! With all our family trying to split themselves among all their loved ones, we decided to celebrate the Saturday before Christmas. This takes tons of planning and definitely can distract me from my regular responsibilities. So I always have to set time aside to make sure life's non-holiday fun gets done.


Life is short. Eat the Christmas cookies and find those scholarship awards!

So as you plan and prepare for all of the season’s holiday cheer, remember to set some time aside for your scholarship search. It doesn’t matter if your student is in elementary school or you are in graduate school, it is prime time for you to catch up on some of those upcoming deadlines while in your pajamas drinking hot cocoa.

To help you out, here are 24 (see what I did there) scholarships that you can apply to before the new year and if you missed the deadline, don't forget to set a reminder for next year. Setting reminders on your calendar can alert you next year as some of the scholarships are open every year.
