​The United States Senate unanimously passed a resolution in 1962 creating the UNITED STATES SENATE YOUTH PROGRAM (USSYP), a national nonpartisan initiative to provide an annual opportunity for talented high school students with demonstrated leadership abilities to deepen their understanding of America’s political processes and strengthen their resolve to pursue careers in public service.

The 2024 U.S. Senate Youth Program application window is open from August 1 to September 29. High school juniors or seniors may apply provided they meet all program qualifications as outlined by the U.S. Senate Youth Program. The application, program criteria, and informational brochures are found on the Excellence Recognitions USSYP webpage at www.gadoe.org/USSYP. Applications are due by September 29 at 5:00 p.m.
