Thursday, August 26, 2021

Students are urged to apply for the United States Senate Youth Program, which is a unique educational experience for outstanding high school students interested in pursuing careers in public service.

The 60th Annual U.S. Senate Youth Program will be held in Washington, D.C., from March 5-12, 2022. Two student leaders from each state, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity will gather for an intensive week-long study of government and those who lead it. In addition, each selected delegate receives a $10,000 scholarship.

The overall mission of the program, which was established in 1962, is to help instill knowledge of the American political process and a lifelong commitment to public service.

There are numerous deadlines in applying for the program, the first of which is Oct. 1.

The United States Senate Youth Program coordinator for Iowa is Rosanne Malek. Contact her at (515) 281-3199 or rosanne.malek@iowa.gov. Additional program information, including the student application, can be found on the U.S. Senate Youth Program page.
