U.S. Senate Youth Scholarship Program

The U.S. Senate Youth Scholarship Program (USSYP) is a nationwide college scholarship program, designed to promote student leaders' awareness, participation and interest in government. Administered by the individual states, it is funded by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.

USSYP is open to students currently enrolled (as of October) as a high school junior or senior in a Massachusetts public, charter or private school; irrespective of nationality, race, color, creed, first language, sex, sexual orientation or financial need.

Students are eligible for the program provided they have not previously been a delegate and are currently serving in an elected or appointed position in student government or a civic or educational organization where they are representing the entire student body.

Each student applicant must be a Permanent Resident of the United States, currently enrolled as a junior or senior in a public, charter or private high school located in the state in which either one or both of his/her parents or guardian legally resides. A student attending a school in Massachusetts whose parents or guardians legal residence is outside Massachusetts, is not eligible.
