One-year academic scholarships to DEMCO-member students who are attending, or plan to attend, a Louisiana public college or university are awarded each year in a random drawing at the DEMCO annual membership meeting. Each year hundreds of applications for the annual scholarship drawing are received by DEMCO. Deadline to apply was May 9, 2022.
The scholarships awarded by DEMCO provide $2,500 to DEMCO member-students attending a Louisiana public college or university to help with academic tuition. Recipient students are eligible for an award of $1,250 for each of two consecutive semesters.
DEMCO is allowed to use unclaimed deposits, refunds and other moneys owed to former members to provide funding for the scholarship program.
