Due Nov. 20: 2020-21 U.S. Senate Youth Scholarship Program

The 59th annual United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP), established in 1962 by U.S. Senate Resolution, awards two student leaders from each state and the District of Columbia a week in Washington, D.C. to experience their national government in action. Delegates hear major policy addresses by senators, cabinet members, officials from the Departments of State and Defense and directors of federal agencies. Delegates will also participate in a meeting with a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Each delegate is awarded a $10,000 college scholarship for undergraduate studies.

The competition is limited to juniors and seniors who are currently serving in any of the following student government offices:

  • Student body president, vice-president, secretary or treasurer
  • Class president, vice-president, secretary or treasurer
  • Student Council representative
  • National Honor Society officer
  • Student representative elected or appointed to a district, regional or state-level civic or educational organization

If students are unable to hold leadership positions this year due to the pandemic, they can submit the position they held during the 2019-2020 academic year. All student leadership qualifying positions are subject to the judgment of the state selection administrator and will be verified and confirmed.

For more information, view the USSYP brochure here.

The USSYP Washington Week will be held online the week of Mar. 14, 2021. The exact timeframe of the program is to be decided.

Access the application here

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Nov. 20.

Incomplete or late applications will not be considered. Finalists will be notified by Dec. 31. Finalists will be required to attend a virtual interview the week of Jan. 11-15, 2021. On the basis of the personal interview, essays, letter of recommendation and application, judges will select two student delegates to represent Oklahoma and a first and second alternate. The two students chosen to represent Oklahoma as delegates and the two students chosen as alternates will be notified by the middle of February.
