William Jennings Bryan Forensics Scholarship
Creighton University offers $4,000 scholarships renewable for four years to students who excel in speech activities. The scholarships will be based on academic along with speech achievements. Continuation of the scholarship over the four-year academic term will require maintaining a 2.5 cumulative GPA and participation on the Creighton University Forensics Team.
The scholarship was designed to recognize students who display outstanding speech talent. The Creighton University nationally-ranked Forensics Team fields competitors in 11 different Individual Events (including oral interpretation of literature, public speaking, and limited preparation events).
To be considered for the scholarship, students must meet the following criteria:
• Submission of a Creighton University Application for Undergraduate Admission and Scholarship by January 7 of your senior year.
• Submission of the Creighton University William Jennings Bryan Scholarship application and supporting documentation by February 1 of your senior year, including a forensics activity resume and two completed recommendation forms from coaches/teachers.
The application form should be submitted online. The two recommendation forms should be sent by February 1, 2013 to Prof. Laura Gill; Attn: William Jennings Bryan Scholarship, Communication Studies; 2500 California Plaza, Omaha, NE 68178.
All students who apply for the scholarship are welcome to audition for the team at Creighton University in the Harper Center Admissions Office Sunday February 17, 2013. Specific audition information will be emailed to participants by February 10, 2013. If you are unable to audition on campus, a DVD or private YouTube recording of your performance may be submitted and sent to Laura Gill. However, we strongly encourage students to complete this portion of the application on campus. The scholarship will be awarded based on your audition or DVD.
For the audition, please prepare a 3-5 minute performance. The performance may be a short selection from an oral interpretation piece, public address, limited preparation, mock trial case, or affirmative case. You will also be asked to participate in a short interview process.
If you have additional questions about the application process or the Creighton Forensics Team please contact Director of Forensics Laura Gill at email@example.com
