Deadline nears for students applying for U.S. Senate Youth Program

Date: 
Tuesday, September 13, 2022

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.

This year’s program will take place from March 4-11. It is yet to be determined whether the program will take place online or in person in Washington, D.C. Two student leaders from each state, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity will gather for an intensive 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 Sept. 30, when student applications are due. Additional program information, including the student application, can be found on the U.S. Senate Youth Program page. Questions? Contact Stefanie Wager, stefanie.wager@iowa.gov or 515-419-2876.
