Scholarship Reminder: Time is Ticking

Scholarship Reminder: Time is Ticking

If you are a senior in high school, you have probably familiarized yourself with a few deadlines by now. Among the popular ones are November 1 and January 1, but there is one that all DECA members should really be keeping an eye on: January 18, 2019.

Online submission for DECA’s scholarship program closes on January 18, marking an end to the unparalleled opportunity of tapping into a pool of over $300,000 in merit-based scholarships. With such amazing resources reserved exclusively for DECA members across the nation, we see every reason for you to jump in on the action. 

Through DECA’s Online Scholarship Portal, every DECA member possesses a an accessible way to compete for the money awarded each year at ICDC. In addition, there are a series of changes to the online application process that work towards protecting the integrity of the submissions and making the required documents more convenient to submit. The following additions to the portal are taken from a DECA direct ( article: 

  • “There is now a DECA member ID field in the student profile section of the online portal. This is an important step that will improve the security of the scholarship review process and eliminate the need for member applicants to prove that they are members.

  • “Members no longer have to mail support materials (letters of reference, transcripts, member roster, etc.). Instead, they will upload materials to the online portal. More details about this process will be provided closer to the review date.”

We do not want you to miss out on your chance to cash in on the merit scholarships that are sponsored by our generous corporate sponsors.

We would love to see our Oregon DECA members rewarded for their DECAcation to our wonderful organization.
