By SAGE Scholars — March 14, 2022

Simpson College, where nearly 100 students participate on the highly-acclaimed Speech and Debate Team, winner of Pi Kappa Delta national championships four of the past five years, has joined the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards program.

Speech and Debate scholarships are available at Simpson, located near Des Moines, Iowa’s state capital. Small class sizes create a dynamic learning environment. Nearly 40% of students are double-majors. 96% complete a high-impact practice such as leadership, study abroad, research, field experience or internship. More than 50% of students compete on one of The College’s 23 varsity sprots teams, with Esports the newest addition.

A Simpson education means personalized attention from faculty — and one-on-one access to experienced mentors and advisors. The campus is one of America’s “Best Colleges for Student Voting,” according to Washington Monthly magazine.

The Simpson Promise covers the full cost of tuition (inclusive of Simpson, federal & state gift aid) for qualified Iowa students whose families have an adjusted gross income of $60,000 or below.
