Congratulations to DECA Scholarship Qualifiers!

When first joining DECA, the overflow of its benefits may have been the first thing you were told about, in order to draw you in. In addition to the preparation DECA places you through for your future and the network DECA encourages you to create, DECA also provides you with countless scholarship opportunities! With scholarships amounting to over $300,000, this amazing opportunity is available for both high school and collegiate DECA members. Supplied by several of DECA’s corporate sponsors, such as the Marriot, Otis Spunkmeyer, and Walgreens, a majority of these scholarships are specifically merit based, with requirements and guidelines set by the sponsors themselves.
