Ten years ago, the North Carolina DECA Board of Directors had a vision to create a scholarship fund to assist members in advancing their educational dreams. In that short span of time, through a concentrated effort to raise sponsorship funds, individual giving, and a dedication to returning revenue, they have been able to triple their funds! What began as one five-thousand-dollar scholarship, as grown to a program awarding over 60K in scholarships to deserving NC DECA members! This year one member will receive a life-changing scholarship for $40,000.
“The scholarship fund has been incredibility impactful to the students of North Carolina DECA. Each dollar that is donated gets us closer to another scholarship increase. Our largest scholarship is now $40,000! Give back to NC DECA!”
