8 Holiday-Themed Scholarships You Can Apply For
Tis’ the season for sugar plum cakes and scholarships!
The holidays are just around the corner. Turkey and dressing and family and friends are on most of our minds right now. And with Christmas with its reindeer and candy canes not too far away, it can be easy to forget that the new school year will be here sooner than we think.
What better way to get into the holiday spirit than plenty of opportunities to pay for school through generous scholarships. If you do, you’ll have more time to spend doing the things you love for more holidays to come.
Here are some holiday-themed scholarships that you can take a look at and consider applying for before the next school year gets into full swing.
