United States Senate Youth Program

United States Senate Youth Program is a national initiative to provide a yearly opportunity for talented young people with demonstrated interest in public service to deepen their interest and understanding of America’s political processes and encourage their commitment to political leadership.

The United States Senate Youth Program brings the highest-level officials from each branch of government together with a competitively select group of high-school students (two high school juniors or seniors from each of the fifty states, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education Activity) during an intensive week-long educational program held in Washington, D. C.  In addition, each student receives a one-time $10,000 undergraduate college scholarship with encouragement to pursue coursework in history and political science.  For over fifty years, the program has been fully funded by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation as part of the Foundation’s commitment to preparing young people for citizenship and leadership .
