Applications must be received by February 8th, 2021

Senate Scholars engage in a variety of experiences during their stay in the program. Typical activities may include attending floor debates in the Senate Chamber, committee hearings, seminars conducted by select individuals involved in the legislative process (lobbyists, reporters, legislative staff, Governor’s staff, etc.), and seminars by professors and students from the Robert M. LaFollette School of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

In addition, Senate Scholars will be required to engage in mock legislative activities, such as bill and amendment drafting, policy analysis, fiscal analysis, constituent communications, and lobbying. These activities will culminate in a mock legislative hearing at which Senate Scholars will provide and obtain testimony and then hold an executive session to vote a bill out of committee. Parents and relatives are welcome to attend this hearing.

At the close of the program, there will be an awards reception at which certificates will be given to the Senate Scholars. Parents and relatives are invited and encouraged to attend this event.
