Are you interested in debate? You're in luck!

Whitman College is relaunching our renowned debate program for the 2018-2019 academic year.

It's your chance to get involved as soon as you arrive on campus and hone your skills in analyzing, interpreting, criticizing, and communicating. Our debate scholarships can even help cover tuition.

During the 2018-2019 debate season, Whitman will focus on parliamentary debate. As a parliamentary debate team member, you will be given a different topic in each round and a short amount of time to prepare. You'll participate regionally and take advantage of national and international opportunities depending on the team's progress.

A national search is currently underway for a debate program director experienced in debate and committed to running a competitive program.

You can apply for the President's Scholarship in Debate for the 2019-2020 school year once you have applied to Whitman College whether or not you have past debate experience. You can apply for that and other scholarships when you create and account and apply using the common app.

We hope you'll consider joining the Whitman Debate Team!
