The UNLV Alumni Association is proud of the UNLV Debate Team for all they have accomplished over the years.  It is our honor to support them during this time of need by providing one full-year scholarship for the 2018/19 school year.  We encourage our fellow alumni and community partners to join us in a show of support by also making a contribution.
