Senate Youth Program

The United States Senate Youth Program, established in 1962 by U.S. Senate Resolution, is a unique educational experience for outstanding high school students interested in pursuing careers in public service.  Service delegations will hear major policy addresses from Senators, cabinet members, and officials from several federal agencies as well as participate in a meeting with a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.  Last year, students also spent a morning at the White House and met the President of the United States.

Students are nominated by their high school principal and selected through a rigorous application and interview process. In addition to the week in Washington, students will receive a $10,000 college scholarship.

Applications for Missouri students are due no later than 11:59 pm on Wednesday September 21, 2016.
