One-year academic scholarships to students who are attending, or plan to attend, a Louisiana public college or university are awarded each year in a random drawing at DEMCO's annual membership meeting.
The scholarships awarded by DEMCO provide assistance to help students with academic tuition to a Louisiana public college or university for both the fall and spring semesters of the academic year. Students will be awarded $1,250 cash award to be used by the student as needed.
Each year hundreds of applications for scholarship assistance are received by DEMCO. DEMCO is allowed to use unclaimed deposits, refunds and other moneys owed to former members to provide funding for the scholarship program.
