Harvard Debate Council accepting nominations for its Diversity Project

Harvard College is now accepting nominations for the 2021-2022 Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project. This is an extended course of study, headquartered in Atlanta, in which Black high-school students learn philosophy, political science, rhetoric and more, taught by Harvard’s assistant debate coach. The ideal candidate is highly motivated and is interested in debate, politics, or the humanities.

Students who are accepted into the program will meet three Saturdays per month, starting in August 2021 and continuing through June 2022. They will then attend a two-week summer residency at Harvard College. After their year of learning, students give one year of service to the organization and their community.

To be nominated, a student must be in grades 8-11 and live in metro Atlanta. Debate experience is not required. Nominations are due by February 28, 2021. The application will require a school transcript, a letter of recommendation from a teacher, and other elements.

Need-based financial aid is available.
