2024 Audition Instructions
If you are interested in joining the team, please review and complete the below application!
Additionally, each year, the team awards 5-7 scholarships to incoming students based on their submitted application materials, ranging from $500 to $2000. These scholarships are renewable up for four years based on your continued participation on the team. You will have the option to indicate on the application whether you wish for your materials to be considered for a scholarship. This year, we are asking students to send in digital copies of their application materials and videos of their audition pieces by Monday, March 18th.
Based on a review of your materials by the coaching staff, we will invite a group of students to attend a virtual meet-and-greet with the team later in the spring semester towards the end of April. This invite is our way of asking you to join the team! Official offers to scholarship recipients will be sent out following the meet-and-greet.
If you are interested in auditioning for a scholarship or even participating on the forensics team without a scholarship, I would encourage you to look over the attached information and send in an application and materials so that we can follow up with you over the summer! We are looking for passionate and motivated students who enjoy speaking on and advocating for important issues through speech and debate activities.
That could be you!
Students interested in joining the team should submit the following materials by Monday, March 18th:
Thank you again for your interest in joining the Truman Forensics team! We look forward to hearing from your soon and hope to welcome you into the Bulldog Speech & Debate Family!
Any questions regarding the audition process can be addressed to Director of Forensics, Prof. Ben Davis, at email@example.com.
