Senate Scholar Program Now Taking Applications

High school juniors and seniors are encouraged to apply to participate in the Wisconsin Senate Scholars program, which will take place in February and March. This week-long, intensive program at the State Capitol introduces students to the many facets of the legislative process. They meet with legislative support agencies, legislative staff, the Governor’s staff, a Supreme Court Justice, the media, lobbyists, and University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty members to learn more about state government. The week’s events culminate in a Senate Scholar Committee hearing on a bill that the students draft.

High schools throughout the state will soon have information and application materials available, or you can visit now for more information and how to apply.
