Stand Out From the Crowd: Get Your DECA Scholarship Application Reviewed

With the January 18, 2019 due date quickly approaching, now is the perfect to start or finish your DECA scholarship application. Each year, DECA receives thousands of applications from its members. Here’s four easy steps to make sure yours gets noticed: 

  1. Include as much information as possible in your profile, especially your DECA activities, as this information carries over to each application you submit. 

  2. Apply only for the application(s) that match your college/career interests and in which you meet the criteria.  

  3. Make sure your application is complete before submitting and click ‘submit’. If you don’t receive an email from DECA confirming your application was received, then it wasn’t submitted successfully. 

  4. Check for accuracy and remember to proofread. Better yet, ask someone else to review and give feedback on your application.  

Setup your online account today and start completing your profile. Remember applications are due January 18, 2019 and incomplete or late applications will not be accepted. 

Contact DECA’s Development department with any questions: email Monica Thomas or call 703-860-5000.
