The United States Senate Youth Program brings the highest-level officials from each branch of government together with an outstanding 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
(DoDEA)— during an intensive week-long educational program held in Washington, D.C. The program is merit-based and highly competitive. Each
student also receives a one-time $10,000 undergraduate college scholarship with encouragement to pursue coursework in history and political science.
Due to the many uncertainties posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, The Hearst Foundations’ planning for Washington Week 2021 is currently on hold and applications nationwide are NOT being accepted at this time. Please check back for updates. We will post as soon as we have heard from the USSYP with additional information.
