December is a very busy month for most students. It marks the end of the first academic semester which usually means additional homework and exams. For students who are high school seniors, December is when some students learn the status of Early Decision and Early Action applications.

Most seniors will also finalize their applications for Regular Decision applications. On top of all of this, students are also preparing for their December break. This is an excellent opportunity to apply for many of the great December scholarships available! Below you will find the top December scholarships that are available for high school students, college students, and even graduate students! Some of them expire very soon, so don’t wait!

The Gil Kushner Memorial Travel Award was established in honor of Gilbert Kushner, a longtime SfAA Fellow and winner of the Sol Tax Distinguished Service Award in 2005. By the time Gil retired at the end of the 20th century, the USF Department of Anthropology was a thriving intellectual center of applied research with more than 60 MA students and more than 40 enrolled in its highly regarded applied doctoral program. Recognizing that early field research experiences provide indelible impressions and insights that guide anthropologists in their future work, Gil was committed to securing internships and research opportunities for applied anthropology students. Individuals must have been enrolled as a student during some part of the current year. Each Kushner Award winner will receive a scholarship toward their travel expenses to attend the SfAA annual meeting. Please visit the scholarship's website for more information.Show Less

How to write effective scholarship applications

December scholarships, like any scholarship opportunity, are very competitive. In order to win money for your education, you’ll have to craft standout applications. Luckily, we can help you with that. Check out our guides to starting and ending scholarship essays, writing about yourself, and writing a winning scholarship essay. We can also walk you through answering the most common scholarship essay prompts and writing a scholarship resume. Good luck!

Tips for students in December

December is always a great time to finish the first half of the school year strong. Make sure to keep up with your schoolwork, and study early and often for finals. Form study groups with friends to help learn the material better and make the study process more fun.

If you’re already on break, remember that you can take advantage of the time away from class to get ahead on schoolwork or studying for any upcoming tests. The added flexibility in your winter break schedule can allow you to immerse yourself in a way that you cannot during the school year.

And remember – take some time over your holiday break to relax and spend time with your family!

Frequently asked questions about December scholarships

Remember – there are new scholarships opening and closing every day, so no matter the time of year, there are opportunities open for you.

What is the best month to apply for scholarships?
