Indiana University Debate
Hoosier Policy Debate
IU debate is highly interested in recruiting debaters with high school policy debate experience for the 2013-2014 season. Incoming debaters will take advantage of an exciting time in IU debate history. We are currently in the process of rebuilding the team into a consistently competitive national policy squad. Indiana's location as well as the support from the University guarantees a national travel schedule. All we need now is motivated students like YOU to help us grow. We are also going to host the 2014 National Debate Tournament and CEDA national next spring!
Squad Room and SPEA Support:
IU Debate is currently housed and supported by the prestigious and highly ranked School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
Students are highly encouraged to look into directly admitting into SPEA. Direct admit students are eligible for an additional $5,000 in scholarship funds.
"The School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) proudly offers the SPEA Direct Admission Scholarship. The SPEA Direct Admission Scholarship is a $5,000 award per academic year, disbursing as a $2,500 award for each fall and spring semester at IU Bloomington. Only completed Selective Scholarship Applications will be reviewed by the SPEA Direct Admit Scholarship committee, and SPEA will communicate scholarship decisions via email in early March. If scholarship recipients remain in good standing, both academically and non-academically, as well as enroll in and complete at least nine credit hours of SPEA coursework with the fall and spring semesters, the scholarship will be eligible for renewal for up to four total years of undergraduate study and a maximum award amount of $20,000.
IU debate has other opportunities for debate enthusiasts to be apart of our squad. If the time and dedication needed to be apart of the travelling competitive team proves too time consuming, we are always looking for interested individuals who wish to engage in public debates, assist with tournament preparation and hosting. More information and opportunities for being apart of the debate culture can be found by contacting Mr. DeLong.
