DECA Scholarship

As an official Partner of DECA, our DECA Scholarship recognizes five incoming DECA member students from around the world who are emerging as the next generation of entrepreneurial business leaders. In addition to DECA membership, these students exhibit teamwork, integrity, and innovation. 

Scholarship amount

For the 2019-2020 intake, recipients of this scholarship receive $5,000 USD each academic year. For a 4-year program this scholarship would be worth $20,000 USD; for a 3-year program this scholarship would be worth $15,000 USD.

How to apply

To be considered for the DECA Scholarship, you must submit a 400-500 word essay or short 2-5 minute video. Your submission should illustrate your perspective on being a business leader in the 21st century, and consider the following questions:

  • What makes a business leader successful in the 21st century? Explain how your experience with DECA has helped you develop these traits.
  • What are your career aspirations, and how will studying at Hult help you achieve your goals?

In addition to evaluation by the Admissions Committee, the submissions for this scholarship will be assessed by the Deans of each campus.

Application deadline

Applications must be submitted by February 15th, 2019. Candidates who have been awarded the scholarship will be notified by March 1st, 2019. Apply here.

Receiving your scholarship

If you are awarded this scholarship and wish to receive it, you must confirm your place no later than May 1st, 2019, otherwise your allocated funds may be released to other students. This scholarship will be renewed each year provided you are a full-time student, are not placed on academic probation, and have no honor code violations.


This scholarship is for students applying for fall entry in September 2019. Most students will only receive one merit-based scholarship. Scholarships are renewed each year unless otherwise noted, but can be lost based on poor academic performance, academic probation or violations of the honor code. Scholarships are awarded as deductions from the student’s payment obligations, and are only applied against the tuition fee. Scholarships are not awarded as cash.
