Debating for Democracy (D4D)™ inspires students to become successful advocates in their communities. To encourage engaged citizenship, Project Pericles requests original letters to elected officials from teams (two or more students) at Periclean colleges and universities. A panel of judges will select the winning teams for the D4D competition. Five teams from five different colleges will win $500 to work on their issue.
Note: This grant is not in service of Swarthmore College and does not create an employment relationship between the student(s) and Swarthmore College.
