The USSYP is an annual high school scholarship competition sponsored jointly by the U.S. Senate and the William Randolph Hearst Foundation. Delegates are marked for their outstanding leadership abilities, strong commitment to their communities and public service. In addition to a $10,000 scholarship, each delegate is awarded a week-long, all expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. where the 104 student delegates are afforded unprecedented access to their federal government.
