Loyola University Chicago has a debate scholarship application, which can be accessed here. Scholarships range from $1,000 – $7,000, depending on debate aptitude and need. The Director of Debate, David Romanelli, invites CDL seniors who have not yet committed to a college in the fall — and all juniors — to apply to Loyola, which has probably the largest number of Chicago Debates alums on their debate team every season.
Illinois College has given multiple Chicago Debates alums scholarships and has an active debate team a few hours from Chicago – contact Head Coach Shawna Merrill for more information about debate at Illinois College at firstname.lastname@example.org.
University of West Georgia has scholarship money and is noted for their attention to student academics, including a notable recent success story in Hakeem Muhammad, an alum of King College Prep. For more information, please contact Michael Hester at email@example.com.
Regis University in Denver is interested in Chicago Debates debaters and Director of Forensics Jon Denzler can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NAUDL has a somewhat outdated list of college debate teams offering scholarships, notably including Samford, Indiana, SIU, Wake Forest, USC, Emory, Emporia, UNLV and Baylor.
A full list of all colleges that have debate programs (both policy debate and parliamentary debate) can be found here.
