Thank you for your interest in debate at Samford University. Debate is a central focus of the curriculum at Samford and we encourage all students to debate. However, we can not offer every student a scholarship. In addition to carrying over commitments from earlier years, the number of students that come to Samford to debate stresses the limits of our scholarship budget. One consequence is that we have to choose between relative qualifications when we make scholarship offers. Our paramount concern is that we offer scholarships to students that will succeed academically and actively contribute to Samford's debate team and community. Strong preference will be given to students with high-level NFL/TOC style policy debate experience.
We look forward to receiving your application for a scholarship. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dr. Ryan Galloway (email@example.com) for further information on the team and scholarship opportunities.
