BUDL hopes to support a number of scholarships to summer debate institutes. Scholarships to the B’More Debate Institute are available to participating Baltimore City Public Schools and their students 4th-12th grade.

Below is information about the Baltimore Urban Debate League’s B’more Institute. We hope to be able to offer scholarships to students. With the help of BUDL teachers, BUDL administrators will determine which students are sent to which institutes.

What the Scholarships Pay For

Scholarships include the cost of transportation to and from the Institute, food, and tuition ($2,500) BUDL will make transportation arrangements and pay tuition directly to the institutes. Students will receive registration packets for the institutes and contact information for the institute administrator. Students are responsible for being sure that they have the necessary supplies, and funds to cover any additional costs (for snacks, emergencies, etc.).

Expectations of Students Receiving Scholarships

Students who receive scholarships are expected to:

· Complete all necessary paperwork. The BUDL has a set of medical forms, designed to ensure proper care is available to students in the event they need medical attention

· Share the evidence they receive with the rest of their team, and with other members of the league on the request of BUDL administrators

· Share the experience and knowledge gained at the institute with other BUDL members. The students receiving scholarships should consider themselves leaders. Since we are only able to have a limited number of students, those able to attend have a responsibility to share what they have learned with other students at workshops, tournaments, and other league events.
