Welcome! It is always good to look for scholarships far in advance of need. National DECA offers some scholarships, as well as some colleges in New Hampshire offer scholarships to winners in the annual state competition at the February Conference. See below for more info on that.
If you attend this school year’s NH DECA State Competition, in February 2014, you ma win scholarships if you are the winner of certain event categories. If you have any questions about winning a competitive event at “states” and winning a scholarship, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For next school year, 2014, begin to check the DECA Scholarship information in September, 2013, at the DECA website. Scroll down for more info!
Being a part of DECA allows you the student to apply for scholarships that are exclusively set aside for DECA members. The BEST place to look for DECA-related scholarship opportunities is at this link:
