Have a student seeking public service?

Monday, August 31, 2015

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.  
Established in 1962, annual program will be held in Washington, D.C., from March 5-12. Two student leaders from each state, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity will gather for an intensive week-long study of government and those who lead it. In addition, each selected delegate receives a $5,000 scholarship. The overall mission of the program 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 Oct. 2. The United States Senate Youth Program coordinator for Iowa is Stefanie Wager. Contact her at or 515-725-7842. Additional program information, including the student application, is available on our U.S. Senate Youth Program website or by accessing the national United States Senate Youth Program website.
