The POI Debate Institute offers full and partial scholarships for its High School and Master Class programs for debaters hoping to attend this summer, on the basis of 1) financial need, 2) dedication to debate, and 3) passion for the activity. Please note that applications without an explanation of financial need may be disregarded, in order to maximize our assistance to all applicants.

Applications are now open for our 2019 Berkeley programs!

If you would like to be considered for financial aid please complete the form below. 

If you have any further questions, please email financialaid@clubparli.com.

Coach recommendation

Please ask your coach to email us a letter of recommendation at financialaid@clubparli.com. In the letter, your coach should speak to why a scholarship to the POI Debate Institute would benefit you and your team, your commitment to parli, and anything else they'd like to tell us about you as a person. If you don’t have a debate coach, a school teacher will suffice.
