Forensics & Debate Scholarships
BGSU offers scholarships recognizing dedication to, and talent in, forensics and debate participation. The application deadline and audition date falls in early February of each year. Scholarships are renewable for up to four years of participation eligibility. You need not be a Communication Major to receive an award. Unlike some programs, our scholarships are based on growth and participation, not the number of awards accumulated. Our scholarship Deadline is March 1 of each year.
Through the generosity of our alumni, we annually recognize two students for their contributions to the forensics and debate program with the Martin L. Hanna Family Award in Public Speaking and the Howard L. Shine Memorial Foundation Award.
