United States Senate Youth Program

UNITED SENATE YOUTH PROGRAM: Roll your cursor over the title and click to get right to the site.

Why? Each year the William Randolph Hearst
Foundation sponsors a scholarship for two student leaders from each
state and the District of Columbia to visit Washington, D. C. (all
expenses paid), as guest of the Hearst Foundation and a $5,000 college
scholarship for undergraduate studies at an accredited United States
university or college. During the visit to Washington, D.C., students
engage in a series of seminars and briefings with Senators and members
of the House of Representatives and meet with officials from the
executive and judicial branches of government.

The principal of a New York State high school may select only one
candidate for this statewide competition. Any high school junior or
senior is eligible. Once again, for more information and for applications, go to
