Foundation for Missouri DECA

The Foundation for Missouri DECA provides scholarships for members of Missouri DECA who plan to continue their studies in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management at an accredited two or four year college or university. The Foundation oversees the Missouri DECA scholarship program and is the governing body which determines the students to receive the scholarships based on their applications.  

The official Missouri DECA Scholarship Application must be used to apply for scholarships. Each DECA Chapter is only allowed ONE applicant per scholarship, and each DECA member should choose ONE scholarship to apply for. Please review the requirements for each scholarship.

The application for scholarships is updated and available December 1.  Applications must be submitted electronically by February 2, 2024. 


Scholarship recipients will be announced at the State CDC Opening Session on March 3, 2024. All applicants must be graduating seniors.

If you have any questions regarding the scholarship program, please contact the Foundation for Missouri DECA Scholarship Committee at
