United States Senate Youth Program
Each year the William Randolph Hearst Foundation sponsors a scholarship for two student leaders from each state and the District of Columbia to visit Washington, D. C. (all expenses paid), as guest of the Hearst Foundation; and a $5,000 college scholarship for undergraduate studies at an accredited United States college/university.
During the visit to Washington, D.C., students engage in a series of seminars and briefings with U.S. Senators and members of the House of Representatives, as well as meet with officials from the executive and judicial branches of government.
