Those working with high school juniors and seniors may want to know about this program. It does not seem to be open to homeschoolers. This is from the Oregon requirements document on the website linked below: Additionally, nominated students must be a permanent resident of the United States and currently enrolled in an Oregon public or private secondary school.

The Oregon Department of Education invites all high school juniors and seniors to apply for the 2015-2016 United States Senate Youth Program. The U.S. Senate Youth Program, established in 1962 by U.S. Senate Resolution, is a unique educational experience for outstanding high school students interested in pursuing careers in public service.

Two student leaders from Oregon will spend a week in Washington, D.S. to experience their national government in action. Student delegates will hear major policy addresses by Senators, cabinet members, officials from the Departments of State and Defense and directors of other federal agencies, as well as participate in a meeting with a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

All transportation, hotel and meal expenses will be provided by the Hearst Foundations. In addition, each delegate will also be awarded a $5,000 College Scholarship for undergraduate studies, with encouragement to pursue coursework in history and political science.
