Dear DECA Sponsor:
As a DECA Sponsor you know the importance of real-world experience in the field of
corporate communication. We in the Communication Department at Avila University
share your vision. We strive to prepare students for successful, challenging careers
in public relations, advertising, corporate communication, and all professions related to
communication. Avila gives students ample opportunities to work with real clients and
build an engaging portfolio. Education is the gateway to success.
Your students, who demonstrate knowledge and skill in these areas, may qualify for a
Performance Grant. Performance Grants for up to $3,500 per year are renewable to a
maximum of $14,000 (over four years). Interested students should apply now while
grants are available.
We appreciate your assistance by posting or forwarding the attached flyer for Junior and
Senior students to view. Any student interested in having their “$kills pay their bill__DOCTEXT__rdquo;
should apply FREE online at www.avila.edu. In the question, “Why have you decided to
apply to Avila University?” students should include that they are “interested in being
considered for the VisCom Performance Grant”. Students can go directly to the FREE
high school application by typing the following in an internet browser:
