Greetings!

The ADI is seeking fellows for the 2012 institute. The position is open to students currently in their second or third year of college debate who will be competing next year and who have a track record of success on the national level. The ADI Fellows serve in a number of capacities at the institute, but essentially are assistants to the lab instructors, though the fellows are also given time for individual research and practice debates with other fellows judged by the faculty.   

Fellows receive a tuition remission for the institute, free housing at the Twin Palms Hotel as well as a stipend of $200. Fellows in previous years have included participants in elimination rounds of CEDA Nationals and the NDT, 1st round recipients, and CEDA and NDT National Champions (most recently, Eric Lanning from Michigan State). At this year's CEDA and NDT tournaments, ADI Fellows were represented across the NDT elims--including semifinalists (Kanellopolous, Moczulski), octafinalists (Cook, Masterson, Woodruff), and double octafinalists (Allen, Rumbaugh)--as well as the CEDA elims (Cook and Rumbaugh both debated on Monday). ADI fellowships are an excellent way to get a jump on the topic by working with some of the top debaters and coaches in the country while using the outstanding library facilities at Arizona State University.

Fellows job responsibilities typically include: assisting lab practice speeches and debates during the afternoons, working on individual and joint fellows assignments in the evenings, and producing 1 individual neg file and one joint aff before attending the institute. Fellows may take on additional pre-institute neg assignments for increased stipends.

The dates for the ADI will be July 30-August 12. Interested students should email me with their contact information, debate background, an attached letter of recommendation from a coach addressing their work ethic and teaching ability, and a brief statement explaining why you'd like to be a fellow at the ADI.

The deadline for Fellows Applications is Friday April 27th. I will announce fellows selections as soon as possible after all applications have been received and reviewed by faculty. If you have any questions about the ADI or the fellows program, email me at asymonds at asu dot edu or call me at 480-338-5624.

Just 5 days left until the fellows application deadline. We've got a good crop shaping up, don't hesitate to throw your hat in the ring.

In light of our deadline falling on top of the Friday of the TOC, we're going to extend the deadline for fellows applications until THIS Friday, May 4th. Details are in this thread above or on our website.
