Announcing: Women's Leadership Scholars Program
We are pleased to announce a new fellowship program designed to cultivate a network of empowered young women in high school forensics, to foster leadership skills of those scholars, and to promote gender equity in the debate community. This year, we initiate the program with the announcement of the Jo Russell Legacy Scholarship.
In honor of Jo Russell, long-time educator and UNT Mean Green Camp colleague and role model to countless women debaters, one scholarship in the amount of $2500 will be provided to a selected women-identified student to go toward the cost of attendance and participation in the Leadership Program. We are grateful to Jo's children, David and Sondra Russell, who have made this scholarship possible for its inaugural year.
Three additional half scholarships ranging from $900-1250 will also be offered to selected women-identified students to go toward the cost of attendance. All scholarship beneficiaries will participate in Fellowship activities. Applications are due June 1.
