United States Senate Youth Program

Junior and Senior Students & Parents,

The United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) is a unique educational experience for outstanding high school students and an opportunity for motivated student leaders to have direct contact with the highest-level elected and appointed officials in the nation. The USSYP mission is to encourage the best and brightest students in America's high schools to pursue careers in public service.

 

Each year, two student leaders from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) spend a week in Washington, D.C., experiencing their national government in action. The United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) 60th Annual Washington Week will be held March 5–12, 2022.

 

In addition, students selected to attend will each receive a $10,000 undergraduate college scholarship. Students may qualify to apply through leadership positions they currently hold per the USSYP official criteria for the current academic year. All student leadership qualifying positions are subject to the judgment of the state selection n administrator and will be verified and confirmed.
