The Sanford I. Berman Debate Forum at UNLV is pleased to be able to offer a number of scholarships to members of the UNLV Debate Team. UNLV debate scholarships are talent-based scholarships. The offer amount is dependent on previous debate experience/success potential to improve and grow as a debater and on the work that you can/will contribute to the team. We view debate scholarship offers as a four-year promise, and we extend student scholarship offers in writing. As long as a student is meeting expectations to maintain the scholarship, it will always stay at or above the amount that you are initially offered.
The size of scholarship offers is determined by the UNLV debate scholarship committee. That decision is based on the criteria indicated in the scholarship policy statement and the contents of your student information form/scholarship application. Our ultimate goal in awarding debate scholarships is to attract students who love to debate, strive to improve, and want to be part of a winning team.
