U.S. Senate Youth Scholarship Program

Registration Deadline: December 31, 2020

USSYP is open to students currently enrolled 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. Students may qualify to apply through leadership positions they currently hold per the USSYP official criteria for the current 2020-2021 academic year, or if students are unable to hold leadership positions this year due to the pandemic, they can submit a qualifying position held during the 2019-2020 academic year. All student leadership positions are subject to the judgement and verification of the state selection administrators.

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.
