United States Senate Youth Program

The New Jersey Department of Education is pleased to announce its participation in the 57th Annual United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) sponsored by the United States Senate and the Hearst Foundations. Principals of public or nonpublic schools in New Jersey may nominate one outstanding junior or senior to be considered for this highly competitive, merit-based program.

Each year, two high school juniors or seniors from each of the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense schools are selected to participate in Washington Week (March 2-9, 2019) and receive a one-time $10,000 undergraduate college scholarship. Washington Week is an intensive week-long educational program held in Washington, D.C. and expenses are paid for by The Hearst Foundations.
