United States Senate Youth Program Scholarship For Current Juniors and Seniors

(Applicants are advised to carefully review the entire contents of this page before beginning their applications)    
 
The United States Senate Youth Program presents an outstanding opportunity for our best and brightest high school juniors and seniors. Leadership, academic achievement, clear speech and logical thought process, and community involvement are the desired qualities for this scholarship opportunity, provided by the Hearst Foundation. A VPA Selection Committee reads and ranks all applications submitted, sets up interviews with the top six candidates, and selects the two delegates and two alternates who will represent Vermont.
 
 
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.
 
The 57th annual program will be held in Washington, D.C., from March 2-9, 2019.
 
Two student leaders from each state, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education System will spend a week in Washington experiencing their national government in action. Student delegates will hear major policy addresses by Senators, cabinet members, officials from the Departments of State and Defense and directors of other federal agencies, as well as participate in a meeting with a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. All transportation, hotel and meal expenses will be provided by The Hearst Foundations. In addition, each delegate will also be awarded a $10,000 College Scholarship for undergraduate studies, with encouragement to pursue coursework in history and political science. As a followup to your experience, we invite the two delegates to be the guest speakers at the Vermont Association of Middle Level Education (VAMLE) dinner the first Wednesday in June.
