The Chicago Debate Commission has secured nine full-ride scholarships to the 2012 Samford University, Indiana University, and Illinois State University Summer Debate Institutes.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen by the CDC, based on the following criteria: (a) debate ability/potential, (b) likelihood of taking full advantage of the experience (maturity, focus, commitment to debate), (c) school’s debate performance (based on participation first, competitiveness second), and (d) diversity/Title I status.
Applications will only be accepted from CDL coaches. We will accept up to two applications per school. Completed applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will accept applications from any school, any conference.
The application deadline is Monday, April 30th, 2012, 3:30pm.
The scholarships are full, including room and board, but scholarship recipients are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from the university – Indiana U., in Bloomington, Indiana; Illinois State U., in Normal, Illinois; and Samford U., in Birmingham, Alabama. Also, recipients should bring about $100 – $150 in spending money.
Indiana University’s summer debate institute is one week and runs from June 30th – July 7th.
Samford University’s summer debate institute is two weeks and runs from June 24th – July 7th.
Illinois State University’s summer debate institute is one week and runs from June 24th – June 30th.
