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.
For the 2021-2022 intake, recipients of this scholarship receive $5,000 USD or £3,500 GBP each academic year. This translates to $20,000 USD or £14,000 GBP over four years, or $15,000 USD or £10,500 GBP over three years.
Students who apply for the DECA Scholarship may also be awarded one additional merit-based scholarship, with the exception of the Academic Excellence Scholarship.
