United States Senate Youth Program

Annual scholarship competition administered by the California Department of Education.

The California Department of Education administers the United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) that is an annual scholarship competition funded by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation and endorsed by the United States Senate. Each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia select two high school juniors or seniors to participate in the USSYP. The delegates receive a $5,000 college scholarship and attend a one-week, all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. from March 7–14, 2015.

Please note that students must be nominated by their high school principal to be considered for the USSYP. Students are unable to apply to the USSYP directly. The deadline to apply for the 2015 USSYP is Wednesday, October 1, 2014.
