A limited number of scholarships are available for debaters, and while significant debate experience is preferred and encouraged, it is not necessary (though students without prior experience should discuss their goals and interests with the Darrin Hicks well in advance of their application).
To apply for a debate scholarship, please send the following information to Darrin Hicks:
- A letter of application stating your interest and goals in participating in debate at DU. In this letter include a statement of what kinds of time commitments you are willing to make.
- A debate resume outlining your debate accomplishments.
- A letter of recommendation from your high school (or other) debate coach under a separate cover letter.
Materials should be submitted by April 15 to:
Department of Communication Studies
University of Denver
2000 East Asbury Avenue, Suite 200
Denver, CO 80208
