Apply for U.S. Senate Youth Program by November 1

The United States Senate Youth Program has begun its statewide selection process. In March, two Alaska students will join 104 other delegates for Washington Week – an intensive educational program about the workings of the Senate and the federal government overall. State delegates will have outstanding leadership qualities and a strong commitment to public service. They generally rank in the 1 percent of their states academically. Each delegate receives a $10,000 undergraduate scholarship and an expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.


Alaska’s eligible students must be high school juniors or seniors, an elected student officer for the entire 2016-17 academic year, and state residents. Students must be enrolled in a public or private school. Applications are due by 4 p.m. November 1.
