Through a generous contribution from the J. Willard & Alice S. Marriott Foundation, DECA is pleased to provide registration scholarships to high school DECA members to participate in the 2021 Virtual International Career Development Conference (ICDC).
Winners applied for scholarships based on qualifying to compete in a hospitality event during ICDC or interest in engaging as a leadership participant.
Congratulations to all scholarship recipients and best of luck to all DECA members participating in the first virtual ICDC!
A complete list of the winners is available here.

Marriott, the Marriott Foundation is dedicated to helping youth secure a promising future, especially through education on the secondary and higher education levels, mentoring and youth leadership programs.
