Each year Washington DECA awards over $60,000 in scholarships to our student members. This is in addition to the quarter million in scholarships available through international DECA. One way DECA invests in our community and economy is through merit and need-based scholarships to help launch emerging leaders in entrepreneurship, marketing, finance, hospitality, and management.

Scholarship awards are made possible through our committed corporate partners, DECA alumni, and families across Washington who have seen first-hand the powerful difference DECA makes for students.

Steven Anthony Rhone, Jr. Student Continuing Education Scholarship
Steven was only 19 years old when he was killed on June 2, 2007 by a hit-and-run drunk driver while simply attempting to cross the street. His family and friends offer two scholarships as a way of having his legacy live on in a way that envelopes his positive spirit and love of life. Our hope is to help other Washington DECA members have a productive future and to be able to contribute to our society.
