JWU Awards Scholarships to DECA Members at 2015 ICDC
Johnson & Wales University awarded 125 DECA members scholarships to attend any of its four campuses and honored these members during a scholarship breakfast at DECA’s 2015 International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Fla.
Helping students understand the connection between a college degree and career success is a primary goal of DECA’s Comprehensive Learning Program and helping students obtain a college degree is a shared goal of DECA’s Scholarship Program and its college partners.
JWU scholarships range from $1,000 up to full tuition and are renewable for up to four years. Last year, the JWU awarded more than $9 million in scholarships and tuition credits to members of DECA.
